Artist's Description

Desdemona
Recent critics take a variety of approaches to the topic of Shakespeare’s women. For feminist critics influenced by French feminism, the analysis of the female body in Shakespeare’s plays has proven fruitful. Carol Chillington Rutter, author of Enter the Body: Women and Representation on Shakespeare’s Stage (2001), focuses for instance on the body of Cordelia, as her father, King Lear, carries her on to the stage; on the body of Ophelia in the grave; and on the bodies of the two women on the bed at the end of Othello, “a play that destroys women.”
