This text examines the various treatments of the myth of the rape of Lucretia in Renaissance England. The first section deals with Shakespeare's narrative poem "Lucrece", while the second analyzes representations of the story on the contemporary stage, including Heywood's play and other material. The author offers a close analysis of the texts, and also contextualizes the representations within the socio-economic circumstances of the time in which they were produced. Topics discussed in an effort to illuminate the ways in which the story reflects, and is reflected by, the early modern discourses of gender and genre include: epistemology, thanatology, ontology, medicine, witchcraft, cartography, and interior decoration.
