  1. Act 4, Scene 4, Lines 461-666 By: Ruth M., Izzy, Luke, and Ivy

  2. Synopsis • Camillo convinces Florizel & Perdita to go to Sicilia • They can marry there ~ Polixenes doesn’t want them to • Camillo thinks bringing them there will reunite kings • Shifts play back to Sicilia, brings Leontes back • Florizel pays Autolycus – switch clothes • The three then leave to a ship

  3. Characters • Camillo – has own goals, loyal • Florizel – in love • Perdita – in love • Autolycus – always makes situations benefit him, tricky, deceptive

  4. Analyze Style • Parallelism ~ with wind (4.4, 539) going back to (1.1, 31) and also in (2.3, 153) • Each section talking about how the wind is pushing them/forcing them to do something • Personification • (4.4, 476-477) “Let Nature crush the sides o’th’earth together And mar the seeds within!” ~ Florizel • (4.4, 487-490) “The close earth wombs or the profound seas hides In unknown fathoms” ~ Florizel • Irony • (4.4, 652-653) “I see the play so lies That I must bear a part.” • (4.4, 578-579) “She is as forward of her breeding as She is I’th’rear’ our birth.” ~ Florizel

  5. Motifs • Nature • Wind (4.4, 539) • ‘Nature’ (4.4, 476) ~ demonstrating how nature is a greater power, referencing beings/things greater then humans, kings, or princes ~ referencing Hierarchy again, how the gods, and nature control what happens to the kings, peasants, anyone; they are above all

  6. Key Lines • Florizel (4.4, 535-539): "Not any yet: But as th'unthought on accident is guilty To what we wildly do, so we profess Ourselves to be the slaves of chance, and flies of every wind that blows." • Perdita (4.4, 552-653): "I see the play so lies that I must bear a part“ • Camillo (540-543): "This follows, if you will not change your purpose But undergo this flight: make for Sicilia, And there present yourself and your fair princess- For so I see she must be-'fore Leontes."

  7. Questions • What do you think the significance of this passage is? • Who do you think is going to realize who Perdita is?
