Summary

This paper examines the unsettling ways in which historical “redemption” is rendered in The Winter’s Tale and Australia’s landmark legal decision on Indigenous property rights (Mabo). It explores how creative and shame-filled forms of remembrance can interrupt the tragic law that condemns us to repeat the horrors of the past.
