This paper reviews William Shakespeare's 'The Winter's Tale' focusing specifically on the guilt of the female characters and the length of time over which this play takes place. According to this paper, each of the females portray a strength of character that is impressive.

From the Paper:

"As with all of Shakespeare's work, 'The Winter's Tale' offers a myriad of interpretations, some more likely than others. Scholars seem particularly impressed with the strength of female characters in the play and have come up with a number of theories to justify this impression. The play is either about old wives' tales or witchcraft or sexually provocative women (Lamb; Rosenfield). This essay will not explore any of those themes; it will instead examine guilt, memory and the passage of time through the unveiling of Perdita and Hermione in Act Five. One of the most important and unique aspects of 'The Winter's Tale' is its temporal division; its first and second parts are separated by sixteen years.
