Shakespeare's Cymbeline is a story of love, hatred, and betrayal.
The main character, Imogen, is hurt by all of these emotions and actions.
Not just by one person, by many throughout the play. These would include
her father Cymbeline, lover, Posthumus, an Italian named Giacomo, the
Queen, Posthumus' servant, Pisanio, and the Queen's son, Cloten. The

was dead and they buried her. After she awoke,
Pisanio knew about it. Although, he explained to her the misguided words

Throughout Cymbeline misguided words are all Imogen hears from
everyone. Not only from her father, Cymbeline, but also Cloten, Giacomo,
Posthumus, the Queen, and Pisanio. Yet, despite the rude comments and
actions that she is forced to endure, Imogen withstands it
all. Not only for her lover, Posthumus, but for herself.
