In the first full-length study of Shakespeare's Roman plays, Coppélia Kahn brings to these texts a startling, critical perspective which interrogates the gender ideologies lurking behind 'Roman virtue'.
Plays featured include:
*Titus Andronicus
*Julius Caesar

*Antony and Cleopatra
Setting the Roman works in the dual context of the popular theatre and Renaissance humanism, the author identifies new sources which she analyzes from a historicised feminist perspective.
Roman Shakespeareis written in an accessible style and will appeal to scholars and students of Shakespeare and those interested in feminist theory, as well as classicists.
