4 Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy in fact, they are almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other. Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land 7 Orlando James and Natalie Radmall-Quirke 8

5 The Winter s Tale by James Shapiro The years witnessed Shakespeare s last great solo creative burst (his plays after this would all be written collaboratively). In the course of this remarkable period he wrote three plays Cymbeline, The Winter s Tale, and The Tempest markedly different from the thirty or so comedies, histories, and tragedies that preceded them. Their order of composition is unclear, and for all we know The Winter s Tale may well have been Shakespeare s last solo-authored play. These works often referred to collectively as Romances turn, almost obsessively, on a recurrent set of concerns: jealousy, grief, surveillance, distrust, reconciliation, loss, and second chances. In wrestling with these issues in The Winter s Tale, Shakespeare found himself dispensing with the realism that had defined much of his earlier writing. If he had to skip sixteen years, Shakespeare was content to bring an actor onstage and call him Time to tell us as much. If a character had to be violently removed from the action of the play, Shakespeare sends him packing, pursued by a wild beast. If the situation demanded it, he can even bring, or seem to bring, the dead back to life. And if his story demanded that a land-locked country have a coastline, that too was easily arranged. It was the sort of thing that drove Ben Jonson, a champion of verisimilitude, to distraction. Years after The Winter s Tale was first staged Jonson was still fuming that Shakespeare in a play, brought in a number of men saying they had suffered shipwreck in Bohemia, where there is no sea near by some hundred miles. Shakespeare s highly experimental technique extends to the play s language, even if that meant that on occasion an actor s words could barely be understood. So that, for example, it s as if intelligibility itself, let alone the familiar rhythm of iambic pentameter, gets strained to the breaking point when Shakespeare tries to capture the workings of a mind tortured by jealousy: Affection! Thy intention stabs the centre. Thou doest make possible things not so held, Communicat st with dream (how can this be?), With what unread thou co-active art, And fellow st nothing. Then tis credent Thou mayst co-join with something, and thou dost (And that beyond commission), and I find it, And that to the infection of my brains And hard ning of my brows. These lines, with their fits and starts, selfquestioning, and parenthetical asides, feel as fractured as the disturbed mind of Leontes himself, who speaks them. We can only imagine what the actor who was first handed this role must have felt. As late as 1603, when Shakespeare was still regularly rehearsing and acting alongside his fellowplayers, he would have been around to explain what needed explaining. But by the time he was writing The Winter s Tale, he was no longer spending long days in the company of his fellow-players. It s hard not to conclude that he was writing what he wanted to write, and leaving it to the players to deal with it as best they could. Happily, the greatest directors and actors have always found this speech, and others like it, extraordinary. All of which is to say that The Winter s Tale is a play that resists glib summary or even simple description. This was true even in Shakespeare s day, if the report of Simon Forman, astrologer and diarist, is representative. Forman saw the play at the Globe Theatre in May 1611 and jotted down the following: observe there how Leontes the King of Sicilia was overcome with jealousy of his wife with the King of Bohemia his friend Remember also how he sent to the oracle of Apollo, and the answer of Apollo, that she was guiltless and 9 Ryan Donaldson and company 10

6 that the King was jealous, etc. Remember also the Rogue that came in all tattered and how he feigned him sick and to have been robbed of all that he had, and how he cozened the poor man of all his money. After a good deal more of this, Forman sums things up: Beware of trusting feigned beggars or fawning fellows. Is this all that he took away from the performance? Vapid plot-summary and a moral one might find in a fortune-cookie? What s so infuriating about Forman s account especially because it s the only contemporary one of the play to survive is how poorly it does justice to so remarkable a work of art. But Forman is not to blame if the play disintegrates when reduced to plot summary. For how can anyone begin to account for those small moments that collectively define the play s haunting brilliance? The ghostly presence of the dead. The small but inescapable frictions that define family life. The sexual fixation of a jealous mind. The awakening of faith. The refusal to be silenced. The pathos of offstage deaths. Forman saw the play outdoors, at the Globe. But Shakespeare was also writing it with two other likely venues in mind, which may help explain what feels so different about the play. One of those venues was the Jacobean court, where the play, staged there on at least five occasions, was a hit. The other and more significant venue was Blackfriars Theatre, a small indoor stage in the heart of London. After 1609 or so Shakespeare s company performed there annually during the winter months, returning to the Globe in the summer. The Winter s Tale, with its often dense and understated dialogue, its intense opening and closing scenes, its reliance at its climax on music, and its mysteriousness all staged in flickering candlelight feels like a play written with the potential of an intimate Blackfriars performance very much in Shakespeare s mind. A challenging work for even the most talented of contemporary directors and actors, The Winter s Tale seems very much a play for our own day, not least of all because of what it has to say about terrible misjudgements and longed-for second chances, however unrealistic they may seem to be. James Shapiro is Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University. He is the author of several books on Shakespeare, including 1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare (2005) and Shakespeare in America: An Anthology from the Revolution until Now (2014). His most recent book is 1606: Shakespeare and the Year of Lear (Faber). 11 Joy Richardson, Natalie Radmall-Quirke 12

7 Abandonment by Jennifer McClinton-Temple Abandonment is never accidental, and it is never partial. It is deliberate and it is complete. It is, perhaps, these qualities that account for the reoccurrence of the theme in folklore and mythology, in social science, and in art and literature. In the Bible, Adam and Eve are banished from the Garden of Eden. In being left to their own devices, being forced to provide for themselves, they are, in their eyes at least, being abandoned by God. Abraham casts off his wife s maidservant Hagar and their son Ishmael, abandoning them to the desert and denying them Ishmael s birthright. Baby Moses, cast among the bulrushes for his own protection, is abandoned by his biological family into the care of another. Folklore and fairytales abound with stories of abandonment: Snow White is left alone in the forest; Romulus and Remus, the mythological founders of Rome, are placed in their cradle in the Tiber river; and of course, Hansel and Gretel are forced from their home and into the lair of a witch. In many foundational stories of abandonment, the abandoned child returns to his or her true family in triumph, either as a leader or having earned great success in one way or another. This triumph seems to mitigate the trauma of the abandonment, implying that the abandonment resulted in some good and allowing for a happy, or at least a contented, ending. In the case of Moses, for instance, it is his abandonment that saves his life. As the Pharaoh has ordered that all male babies born to Hebrews be drowned in the Nile, Moses s mother hid him in a basket in the river where he would be found (and ultimately adopted) by the Pharoah s daughter. In the story of Hansel and Gretel, the children return, having killed the witch, to find that their stepmother has died and they may live happily with their father. Perhaps abandonment appears so frequently in art and literature because, as some philosophers and psychologists believe, the fear of abandonment begins at birth. Sigmund Freud, the Austrian psychiatrist thought of as the father of modern psychological thought, believed that when we are born, and thus physically separated from our mothers, this trauma becomes a central force in our lives. We must, according to Freud, spend a great deal of our lives coming to terms with this separation, which we internalize as an abandonment. Later psychologists would delve deeper than Freud into the fear of and effect of abandonment upon our young psyches. In his highly influential three volume work Attachment, Separation, and Loss (1973), British psychologist John Bowlby discusses his decades long studies of children and their attachments to their caregivers, specifically their mothers. Bowlby notes that infants seek to find their mother when she leaves the room as soon as they are able to crawl. Additionally, the child will follow any familiar adult in lieu of the mother if she is unavailable ( ). Infants demonstrate distress upon impending 13 Joy Richardson 14

8 departure of the mother as soon as they are old enough to sense the signs that she is leaving, around six to nine months of age (204). For Bowlby, the infant is exhibiting the innate fear of abandonment, which produces anxiety. Psychologist Yi Fu Tuan calls fear of abandonment a central childhood fear and points to the frequent use of the motif in fairytales as a method of playing on that fear and keeping control of children (Salerno 98). If this abandonment does happen and it is prolonged, the anxiety becomes a part of the infant s, later the child s, later the adult s personality. He claims that adult anxiety disorders can be attributed to specific child-rearing practices; in particular, he says, frequent and regular separations, or even frequent and regular threats of abandonment bear huge consequences later in life (Salerno 97). Modern philosophers have also considered the fear of abandonment as a central component to modern consciousness. Søren Kierkegaard, 19th Century Danish philosopher, defines modern angst or anxiety as a feeling of looming danger where the source of the threat is unknown. G. W. F. Hegel, a German philosopher of the same era, claimed that the true mark of becoming human is not to desire, but to want to be the object of someone else s desire. Combining these theories then, and remembering as well Bowlby s infants, can lead to the theory that humans innately fear being abandoned and that as we grow older, we are consumed by a feeling that we will lose our most prized object: another human being. In other words, we live as adults with a constant fear of being abandoned, and if we were indeed abandoned as children, either actually or metaphorically, this fear can be the source of debilitating anxiety.

19 The Winter s Tale at the Maly Drama Theatre, 1997 In 1986, Russian theatre director Lev Dodin invited Donnellan and Ormerod to visit his company in Leningrad. Ten years later, they directed and designed The Winter s Tale for the Maly Drama Theatre of Saint-Petersburg. Here Dodin shares his thoughts past and present on that earlier production of The Winter s Tale, which is still running at his theatre in St. Petersburg. Photo: Victor Vassiliev We know that theatre is a labour of love. To become truly alive, to breathe, a production needs a lot of love. As directors we love the story enough to believe that we can truly render it justice onstage, we love actors enough to hope that they will be able to live through the story, we love the audience enough to believe they will come to see our show. The actors love their characters enough to incarnate them. The audience loves theatre enough to come and live the story together with all of us. All this is a beautiful glorious theory in practice it means that if there s not enough love the performance will never become alive. It will never feel right to all those on both sides of the stage. This is why my memory of Declan and Nick coming to do The Winter s Tale in my theatre with my company is one of my most happy and uplifting memories. The Winter s Tale opened in St. Petersburg at the Maly Drama Theatre on October 30th It was a labour of love and friendship. It was a coming together of people who truly knew each other: By 1997 our Russian actors had seen Cheek by Jowl s productions and met with Declan and Nick s company at many wonderful international festivals. Declan and Nick had seen our productions and met our actors at these very same festivals. When I was finally able to ask Declan and Nick to do a production in St. Petersburg, with the support of the British Council in Russia, the love for theatre and our great friendship for each other was already there. The rest is, of course, history. The Winter s Tale has stayed in our repertoire for 19 years in 2017 it will be 20, touch wood. In its opening season it received the highest Russian theatre award, The Golden Mask, for the best drama performance on the big stage. It has toured very successfully all around Russia and internationally, and it has always been and still is much beloved by the audience. Most importantly The Winter s Tale has made my actors very happy for over 19 years now. Declan and Nick were generous enough to leave a fragment of their souls, their talent, their sparkling imagination and their brilliant intellect in St. Petersburg forever. Their search for life and their love of theatre has brightened our stage, our auditorium, and the generations of the audience members who are now bringing their kids to see The Winter s Tale Lev Dodin
