Shakespeare’s Women: Wives, Mothers, and Daughters

When we think of Shakespeare’s plays, we often think of his tragic heroes like Hamlet, Macbeth, and Othello, but what about the women in their lives: wives like Lady Macbeth and Desdemona, mothers like Gertrude, daughters like Ophelia? This lecture will focus on how the women in Shakespeare’s plays are characterized, how their actions are frequently determined by the men around them, and how they influence those men despite their own limited agency.
