Innocence and Jealousy-- Like Othello and The Winter's Tale, Cymbeline deals with perceived betrayal and jealousy. Posthumus Leonatus loves Imogen, daughter of Cymbeline, the King of Britain. Cymbeline has forbidden their relationship and so Posthumus flees the country. In Italy he meets Iachimo who bets Posthumus that he can seduce Imogen. Posthumus accepts the bet and sets the events that will lead to tragedy into motion. "No exorciser harm thee! Nor no witchcraft charm thee! Ghost unlaid forbear thee! Nothing ill come near thee! Quiet consummation have: And renowned be thy grave!"
