Fittingly, the scene is also an allusion to Ovid, the most self-conscious artist among Shakespeare’s literary models. In book ten of the Metamorphoses, the artist Pygmalion carves an ivory statue so realistic that it seems to be a real girl, so beautiful that he falls in love with it. He desperately wants to believe it is real and there are moments when the perfection of the art is such that the statue does seem to be struggling into life. With a little assistance from the goddess Venus, a kiss then animates the statue in a striking reversal of the usual Ovidian metamorphic pattern in which people are turned into things or animals.
Sicilia—or more exactly the kingdom of the two Sicilies, one consisting of the island and the other of southern Italy—was at the heart of the Mediterranean empire of Philip II of Spain, while Bohemia (the western two-thirds of what is now the Czech Republic) became the core of the Holy Roman Empire. When Rudolf II became emperor in 1576, he moved the seat of his government from Vienna to Prague. In Shakespeare’s time, the title King of Sicilia belonged to Spain, while the King of Bohemia was the senior secular elector of the Habsburg Empery.
The Winter’s Tale, however, exists only in a Folio text that is reasonably well printed. ” Capitals indicate that part of the name which is used for speech headings in the script (thus “LEONTES, King of Sicilia”). Locations are provided by the Folio for only two plays, of which The Winter’s Tale is not one. Eighteenth-century editors, working in an age of elaborately realistic stage sets, were the first to provide detailed locations (“another part of the palace”). Given that Shakespeare wrote for a bare stage and often an imprecise sense of place, we have relegated locations to the explanatory notes at the foot of the page, where they are given at the beginning of each scene where the imaginary location is different from the one before.
