Peer Review 2 – Rhys Weller’s “The Winter’s Tale” Script

This is a fantastic script, Rhys! I really enjoyed this reimagining of jealousy and its impact on characters in The Winter’s Tale. Your use of vocabulary is wonderfully poetic; it evokes for readers the dichotomous emotions of fury toward Leontes and tender sympathy for Paulina. My favourite line of dialogue in this piece would have to be: “he is the snake seeking the fairest fruits”. It perfectly encapsulates the darkness and envy that is spiralling around Leontes’ psyche. The only section I personally found a little confusing was the reason for Paulina’s collapse. Was this to parallel Hermione’s fainting in the play? Was it meant to convey something else? Nonetheless, this is a terrific blog entry. Awesome work! – Mariama
