    PDF Women of Will Following the Feminine in Shakespeare´s Plays I think some reviews miss the point of Women of Will This book is not an academic text written by someone who hasn’t “trod the boards” but by a producer director and actor of Shakespeare’s plays who’s been engaging with the Bard for 40 years and who is presenting the insights she has gleaned from her experiences And even it’s the author’s particular conclusions about Shakespeare’s relationship with wom

Summary Women of Will Following the Feminine in Shakespeare´s Plays ¹ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook characters ï PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook º Tina Packer Tina Packer º 0 review From one of the country’s foremost experts on Shakespeare and theatre arts actor director and master teacher Tina Packer offers an exploration fierce funny fearless of the women of Shakespeare’s plays A profound and profoundly illuminating book that gives us the playwright’s changing understanding of the feminine and reveals some of his deepest insights Packer with expert grasp and perception constructs a radically different understanding of power sexuality and redemption Beginning with the early comedies The Taming of the Shrew Two Gentlemen of Verona The Comedy of Errors Packer shows that Shakespeare wrote the women of these plays as shrews to be tamed or as sweet little things with no definable independent thought virgins on the pedestal The women of the histories the three parts of Henry VI; Richard III are Packer shows much interesting beginning with Joan of Arc possibly the first woman character Shakespeare ever created  In her opening scene she’s wonderfull. As a Shakespeare teacher and a feminist I should love a book that wants to argue that Shakespeare was the first dramatist to develop fully rounded individual women characters and shows how that development happened As a lover of theater I should also love a book that draws on decades of experience as an actor and director of Shakespeare But I did not like this bookI found the style to be very off putting as an academic having someone say Shakespeare must have feltdone X raises my hackles Packer doesn t know how Shakespeare felt about women no one does and she can t claim he did X or believed Y again we just don t know What she really means is My version of Shakespeare built out of my reading of the plays felt and did X and that s an entirely different thingShe also was much too attached to her vision of Shakespeare s increasing understanding of and respect for women to the point of having to produce some weird interpretations in order to crush the plays that don t fit into her smooth arc This is most obvious when she simply rejects Two Noble Kinsmen because it is co authored with Fletcher and thus doesn t count But she s happy talk about Henry VIII which is also co authored with Fletcher so it seems obvious that her real problem with Two Noble Kinsmen is that the female characters are flat and uninteresting She also makes some claims about The Tempest that I find simply ridiculous such as Prospero having an affair with Sycorax when it s entirely clear from 12 that she died before Prospero arrived on the island There are also places where she s simply wrong and I m actually surprised to find a director get basic facts about the text wrongSo all in all I found this book very unsatisfying and occasionally infuriating
