When I first started reading this play another reviewer pointed out that it s like Shakespeare just said fuck it I m using every good idea I ever had in one play and damn she was right Cymbeline is such a wild ride from start to finish that never ceases to be thrilling It has elements of Othello The Winter s Tale King Lear and many of Shakespeare s most revered plays Cymbeline is set in Ancient Britain and concerns itself with the Celtic British King Cymbeline not gonna lie when I started this play I thought Cymbeline would be a woman lmao just goes to show the amazing knowledge that I have of British history The play has been considered a tragedy in the First Folio but modern critics often classify it as a romance or comedy which I would agree with as well In case you re up for a little background knowledge on the whole uarto versus folio spiel that you can whip out at parties to impress absolutely no one Shakespeare was uite popular with his contemporaries but his commitment to the theatre and to the plays in performance is demonstrated by the fact that only about half of his plays appeared in print in his lifetime in slim paperback volumes known as uartos so called because they were made from printers sheets folded twice to form four leaves eight pages None of them show any sign that he was involved in their publication For him performance was the primary means of publication Luckily for us in 1623 seven years after he died his colleagues John Heminges and Henry Condell published his collected plays including the 18 that had not previously appeared in print in the First Folio whose name derives from the fact that printers sheets were folded only once to produce two leaves four pages Anyways let s get back to Cymbeline It is one of Willie s last plays and a very perplexing work of art It was probably written in the middle of 1610 and managed to connect the primary genres of tragedy and comedy through the phenomenon of wonder It is the story familiar in all Western literature of how children struggle to get free from their parents In Cymbeline all these traditional rites of passage that allow children to detach themselves from their parents without being too damaged in the process are abruptly and disastrously interrupted The mysterious snatching away of the baby princes Guiderius and Arvirargus Britain s break with Rome Imogen s sudden wedding and flight from her father Seen this way a good deal of suffering in Cymbeline can be attributed to fathers and father figured whether it s the kidnapper and substitute father Belarius or the Roman Emperor denying Britain full nationhood or Cymbeline himself peevishly trying to block his daughter s marriage Fathers fail their children in Cymbeline or get in the way or simply become unimportant as they do in most of Shakespeare s work In the play Imogen s exiled husband Posthumus meets Iachimo who challenges the prideful Posthumus to a bet that he can seduce Imogen whom Posthumus has praised for her chastity and then bring Posthumus proof of Imogen s adultery Iachimo heads to Britain where he aggressively attempts to seduce the faithful Imogen who sends him packing Iachimo then hides in a chest in Imogen s bedchamber and when the princess falls asleep emerges to steal from her Posthumus s bracelet He also takes note of the room as well as the mole on Imogen s partly naked body to be able to present false evidence to Posthumus that he has seduced his bride What the audience will ask is whether any harm has been done to Imgoen by his gazing at her and turning her into an image beyond the damage he plans to do to her reputation with Posthumus Has he in any sense raped her or transformed her Shakespeare opens up several disturbing things in this scene about men and their sexual desires Iachimo is a voyeur and when Imogen falls asleep she becomes vulnerable to his exploitation Due to their similar actions and functions within the play Iachimo naturally reminded me of Othello s Iago remember that damn handkerchief However I think it is preparedness that ultimately distinguishes the two In Othello Iago s opportunism his ability to exploit new circumstances and to relish taking a risk even after a temporary setback differs from the subtle and cautious planning implied by Iachimo arriving with a conjurer s trick boy and fancy explanation about a gift for the Emperor Both men are villains who know how to manipulate their victims insecurities and jealousies but Iachimo s villainy looks like a careful instrument of some design than the embodiment of capricious and anarchic malice Returning to Italy Iachimo convinces Posthumus that he has successfully seduced Imogen In his wrath Posthumus sends two letters to Britain one to Imogen telling her to meet him at Milford Haven on the Welsh coast the other to the servant Pisanio ordering him to murder Imogen at the Haven Cloten s main function in the play is to suffer the insults and death that Posthumus deserves Shakespeare breaks with the established image of the blameless hero or husband who in the source material of the play and in all earlier versions of the wager story goes unpunished even though he orders the murder of his own wife Posthumus is naive even beyond what normally happens in this type of test a wife story so easily deluded in fact that his outbursts suffuse he had never fully trusted Imogen Later in the play the departure from this convention of the impeccable hero is even startling when Posthumus regents and feels suicidal that he ordered Pisanio to murder Imogen Posthumus hysterical loss of self control points to a deep rooted distrust of womenTo protect Posthumus from the ultimate penalty for his crime Shakespeare invented a surrogate for him and then played a joke on the surrogate by giving him an especially appropriate name Cloten the clot that is the thick lump the clod poll the blockish head But Cloten is linked to Posthumus by than his name The characters significantly never appear onstage together and there are disturbing similarities in the things they plan to do to Imogen to take revenge on her The consensus now is that they are Jekyll and Hyde doubles and that a single actor may have played both parts on the Jacobean stage The closely Cloten resembles Posthumus the darker the play will be Meanwhile Cloten learns of the meeting between Imogen and Posthumus at Milford Haven Dressing himself enviously in Posthumus s clothes he decides to go to Wales to kill Posthumus and then rape abduct and marry ImogenImogen has now been travelling as Fidele through the Welsh mountains her health in decline as she comes to a cave the home of Belarius along with his sons Polydore and Cadwal whom he raised into great hunters These two young men are in fact the British princes Guiderius and Arviragus who themselves do not realise their own origin The men discover Fidele and instantly captivated by a strange affinity for him become fast friends Outside the cave Guiderius is met by Cloten who throws insults leading to a sword fight during which Guiderius beheads Cloten Imogen believing the corpse to be her husband driven by the extremity of her grief bloodies her face from the severed arteries in the man s neck so that together she and he may seem the horrid to those who will chance to find them This is awful and it is awful in a way that goes beyond the horrors of classical tragedy Some of Shakespeare s contemporaries believed that the world of Ancient Britain was purer and primitive than their own because closer in time to the lost Golden Age and not corrupted by Rome and the Pope so perhaps in Cymbeline he set out to show them just how wrong they wereThe play ends with pardons reunions and settled uarrels and with the prophecy explained The concluding lines close in a moment of stasis just before all good things are about to begin If we take a closer look at the reunion between Imogen and Posthumus though we will find another image of dependency fixed for ever When Imogen embraces Posthumus he lifts her up and says Hang there like fruit my soulTill the tree die Tennyson wanted these lines with him on his deathbed he thought them so beautiful but they also tell us something uncomforting about this couple Posthumus says he is the tree and Imogen is the fruit so she will hang pendant from him for ever never ripening and falling always his wife and always his daughter This is especially sickening since Posthumus is such bad weak evil man who blames everyone but himself for his own shortcomings and uestionable actions like ordering the murder of Imogen herself ugh Indeed the rehabilitation of Posthumus at the end of the play is the most difficult task that Shakespeare set himself in Cymbeline and I m not uite sure if he succeeded not in my book at least Favorite uote Sir I would advise you to shift a shirt the violence of action hath made you reek as sacrifice is basically Shakespeare s fancy way of saying You stink put on some fresh clothes And I love him for that Favorite stage direction Jupiter descends in thunder and lightning sitting upon an eagle He throws a thunderbolt The ghosts fall on their knees I mean you can t make that shit up Just imagining how they must ve staged that in the early 17th century makes me cackle so much What a mess

I ve read this play three times and I ve found that the longer since I last read it the better I imagine it to be In theory it s a great play the political situation involving the tribute an emerging British nation must pay to a Roman empire has interesting Jacobean parallels in continental politics involving a Roman Church the theological implications the way Shakespeare finds a place for compassion in the merciless world of Lear s gods and flies is instructive and attractive and the cavalier manner in which the bard treats stage conventions from the anonymous two lords in the first scene who only exist to present the necessary exposition to the eventual appearance of a literal deus ex machina in the person of Jupiter shows a master of form thumbing his nose at his own expertise for his particular metaphysical purposesSure this all sounds great in retrospect but the characters themselves are petty and cold and and when they are fresh in my mind they with the exception of Imogen fail to move me Iachimo little Iago is too pathetic and irresolute in his villainy Posthumous Leonatus is too easily persuaded of his love s infidelity and too abruptly murderous in his intentions and even Imogen is much much too ready to forgive Also the play is so full of misunderstandings that it takes one of the longest final scenes in Shakespeare merely to straighten out all the loose ends And yet Cymbeline is full of marvels and immortal poetry including a dirge that is one of the finest lyrics in the English language and it is graced with a heroine Imogen who is as admirable lovable and brave as any the poet has created

I cannot sing I ll weep and word it with theeFor notes of sorrow out of tune are worseThan priests and fanes that lie William Shakespeare CymbelineNot a great Shakespeare play It has a few good lines and seems to follow the path cut by earlier jealousy plays like The Winter s Tale and Othello I think if grouped with these two it is the runt of the jealous litter My favorite uote about this play or this point in Shakespeare s life comes from Lytton Strachey who said it is difficult to resist the conclusion that he Shakespeare was getting bored himself Bored with people bored with real life bored with drama bored in fact with everything except poetry and poetical dreams I tend to agree This seems a bit dashed off A bit loose and ended a bit too happy While I don t need everyone to die like in Hamlet I prefer my Shakespeare endings to be complex uneven human The deaths in this play still seemed to contain very little drama to them And to be sure the IDEA of the play was an interesting one I think if Shakespeare had written this earlier in his life or if he had energy toward the end of his life this might have been able to achieve something between Winter s Tale and Othello One note I might have even given it only 2 stars but Act IV Scene 2 is amazing Belarius has some great lines and the funeral song is amazing I m normally not a fan of Shakespeare s songs but this one was amazingFavorite lines I am glad I was up so late for that s the reason I was up so early Act 2 Scene 3 The game is up Act 3 Scene 3 Fear no the heat o the sunNor the furious winter s rages Thou thy worldly task hast doneHome art gone and ta en thy wagesGolden lads and girls all mustAs chimney sweepers come to dust Act 4 Scene 2 The ground that gave them first has them again Their pleasures here are past so is thie pain Act 4 Scene 2 Fortune brings in some boats that are not steered Act 4 Scene 3
