A Winter's Tale, Act 4, Scenes 1 and 2
Scene 1: spoken entirely by Time. Are you annoyed? Or convinced? What do you think of the rhymes? Scene 2: Camillo plans to ditch Polixenes until he finds out he can wear a disguise and spy on teenage Florizel. Is the idea of spying on your kid funny or creepy or just stage mechanics? And does Leontes' past behavior to his family seem to be influencing Polixenes' present behavior?
