Shakespeare broods on questions of rape and the human heart
In The Rape of Lucrece the dark side of sex and power is explored.
- Why has rape been seen and spoken of in such contradictory, varied ways throughout history?
- Is rape an act that results from a woman’s power deficit?
- Is it an extreme expression of male power subordination, or carnal desire, or both?
- When do perception and language serve as instruments of transformation? â?¦ And when as instruments of coercion?
- If sanctioned sex is a totem, and unsanctioned sex a taboo, is rape a matter of taboo?
His answers, considered in some detail in this book, may surprise you.
