“For death remembered should be like a mirror,
Who tells us life’s but breath, to trust it error.”
Pericles, Prince of Tyre, is forced to flee his own kingdom and wander the world. Following a shipwreck, he meets Princess Thaisa and wins her for his wife. Months later, in another sea-storm, Thaisa dies in childbirth and her body is committed to the deep. The grief-stricken Pericles takes comfort in his baby daughter, Marina, but fosters her with friends. Years pass.
Can report of her death be true?
And can his dead wife return to life?
