Abstract

This article offers an account of Shakespeare’s deviation from a number of influential or source texts in his The Winter’s Tale. From Ovid’s tale of Pygmalion to Marston’s Metamorphosis of Pigmalion’s Image; from Greene’s Pandosto to Aretino’s Sixteen Postures, I demonstrate how Shakespeare evokes then revokes these precursory texts, swerving from the potentially malign influence of his predecessors. Discussion concludes in analysis of the critical and intertextual over-determination of the stature scene.
