Shakespeare: Wenches, Witches, and Wives

Explore three Shakespearean masterpieces and the cultural forces that helped to shape them: The Taming of the Shrew, Shakespeare’s wry, controversial commentary on 16th-century women’s lib; A Midsummer Night’s Dream, with its enchanted woods, star-crossed lovers, bumbling troupe of amateur actors, and depiction of virginity as a fate worse than death; and Macbeth, a study of the psychological effects of evil on a man who sells his soul to the devil for political power.
