The Winter's Tale is a play by William Shakespeare originally published in the First Folio of 1623. Some critics consider it to be one of Shakespeare's "problem plays" because the first three acts are filled with intense psychological drama, while the last two acts are comedic and supply a happy ending.
A sad tale's best for winter: I have one Of sprites and goblins. A thousand knees Ten thousand years together, naked, fasting, Upon a barren mountain and still winter In storm perpetual, could not move the gods To look that way thou wert. Go on, go on Thou canst not speak too much; I have deserved All tongues to talk their bitterest.
On the other hand The Winter’s Tale has also consistently been derided as written when Shakespeare’s imaginative powers were declining (it is one of his last works). This is the typical reaction of a first time reader.
