'"Loytering in love": Ovid's Heroides, hospitality, and humanist education in The Taming of the Shrew'

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    This article reads Shakespeare's domestic comedy in terms of its mobilisation of the gendered cultures of humanist education, on the one hand, and early modern hospitality on the other. Paying close attention to Bianca's reading lesson, drawn from Ovid's 'Heroides", the article argues that Ovidian poetics pervade Shakespeare's comedy, undermining patriarchal control over women and household.
