Eroticism on the Renaissance Stage by Celia R. Daileader

Book Description

In this 1998 book, Celia Daileader explores the paradoxes of eroticism on the stage in early modern England, where women and their bodies (represented by boy actors) were materially absent and yet symbolically central. Her starting point is the theoretical and theatrical problem of sexual acts that take place offstage, which is a paradigm for the limits of the visible in Renaissance theatre. The space that lies offstage becomes an imaginary realm, encompassing both spiritual and erotic transcendence. In accounting for its power, Daileader looks to the suppression of religious drama in England and the resulting secularization of the stage. Focusing on the link between absence and desire, and discussing a wide range of drama from Corpus Christi plays to Shakespeare, her argument draws together questions about sexuality and the sacred, in the bodies - of Christ and of woman - that are banished from the early modern English stage.

Women and Others by Celia R. Daileader Women and Others, Paperback (October 2007)

Discussing intersecting discourses of race, gender and empire in literature, history and contemporary culture, the book begins with the metaphor of 'the other woman' as a repository for the 'otherness' of all women in a masculinist-racist society and shows how discourses of race and sexuality thwart the realization of true inter-racial sisterhood.

This is the first edition for students and general readers of a pro-woman reply to Shakespeare's 'The Tamer of the Shrew' written in Shakespeare's lifetime . Co-edited by a feminist critic and a distinguished textual scholar, it makes clear why 'The Tamer Tamed' should be restored to the theatrical repertoire and the literary canon.
