This study examines "Pericles", "Cymbeline", "The Winter's Tale", and "The Tempest" as interrogative texts, throwing light not only on elements of their complex structure but on some of the pressures existing in Jacobean ideology. It is a politicized reading of the texts, analyzing the multiple dramatic strategies which create angles of vision, revealing deficiencies in the nature of authority, the role of the king as father, husband and ruler, and the function of the aristocratic woman as restorer of harmony. It also discusses problems of genre and dramatic strategies.
