Shakespeare’s “Pericles, Prince of Tyre,” is, according to Ben Jonson, “a mouldy tale,” and, until recently, it was seldom staged. In an informal poll of dedicated New York theatre-goers.

Continuing my series on Shakespeare’s sources I turn my attention to Pericles. This is a late play and almost certainly a collaboration, with either Thomas Heywood, George Wilkins, or John Day, though no one is certain. The main source for the play is John Gower’s, De Confessione Amantis (). Book 8 of this work seems.

Pericles is loosely based on the ancient Greek tale Apollonius of Tyre. Inpoet John Gower translated the story in his De Confessione Amantis and this became the base for Shakespeare to build on. In Shakespeare’s play, the narrator, the character shaping the proceedings, is given the name Gower.

The shift in the protagonist’s name from Apollonius to Pericles may derive from Sir Philip Sidney’s Arcadia () or from one of Shakespeare’s favored ancient sources, Plutarch’s Lives.

Apollonius of Tyre, chief personage in a medieval Latin romance of unknown authorship, which may be assumed to derive from a lost Greek original.

The story enjoyed long and widespread popularity in European literature, and versions of it exist in many languages. The story tells of the separation of Apollonius from his wife and daughter (whom he thinks dead) and his ultimate reunion with them.

Playwright and Shakespeare scholar Nicholas Rowe () theorized in The Works of William Shakespear (London: Jacob Tonson, ) that Pericles, Prince of Tyre was a collaborative work, saying, “There is good Reason to believe that the greatest part of that Play was not written by him [Shakespeare]; tho’ it is own’d, some part of it.The tale of Apollonius of Tyre is the principal tale of the final book.

The play of Pericles, Prince of Tyre (partly by Shakespeare) is based principally on Gower's version, and Gower himself appears as the "presenter", or speaker of the prologues.[Hic loquitur adhuc contra incestuosos amantum coitus. Et narrat mirabile exemplum de magno Rege Antiocho, qui vxore mortua propriam filiam violauit: et quia filie Matrimonium penes alios impedire voluit, tale ab eo exiit edictum, quod si quis eam in vxorem peteret, nisi ipse prius quoddam problema questionis, quam ipse Rex proposuerat, veraciter solueret, capitali sentencia puniretur.
