A provocative, moving, kinky, and often absurdly funny memoir about Shakespeare, love, obsession, and spanking When it came to understanding love, a teenage Jillian Keenan had nothing to guide her—until a production of The Tempest sent Shakespeare’s language flowing through her blood for the first time. In Sex with Shakespeare, she tells the story of how the Bard’s plays helped her embrace her unusual sexual identity and find a love story of her own. Four hundred years after Shakespeare’s death, Keenan’s smart and passionate memoir brings new life to his work. With fourteen of his plays as a springboard, she explores the many facets of love and sexuality—from desire and communication to fetish and fantasy. In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Keenan unmasks Helena as a sexual masochist—like Jillian herself. In Macbeth, she examines criminalized sexual identities and the dark side of “privacy.” The Taming of the Shrew goes inside the secret world of bondage, domination, and sadomasochism, while King Lear exposes the ill-fated king as a possible sexual predator. Moving through the canon, Keenan makes it abundantly clear that literature is a conversation. In Sex with Shakespeare, words are love. As Keenan wanders the world in search of connection, from desert dictatorships to urban islands to disputed territories, Shakespeare goes with her —and provokes complex, surprising, and wildly important conversations about sexuality, consent, and the secrets that simmer beneath our surfaces.

A provocative, deeply moving, and often absurdly funny memoir about how a young woman came to understand love and sexuality through the work of Shakespeare. Jillian Keenan’s childhood was shaped by broken relationships and the manufactured romance of movies and television shows. When it came to understanding love, she had nothing to guide her—until she read A Midsummer Night’s Dream in high school, and felt Shakespeare’s language pulsating in her blood for the first time. In Sex with Shakespeare, she tells the story of how the Bard’s plays eventually helped her fathom human relationships and her own sexuality—and find a happy ending of her own. On the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, her passionate, erudite memoir offers a fresh, unusual take on this cultural icon and his work. Keenan uses fourteen of his plays as a springboard to explore the many facets of love and sex—from desire and connection to fetish and addiction. In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Keenan unmasks Helena as a sexual masochist—like Jillian herself. In Macbeth, she examines criminalized sexualities and the dark side of “privacy.” The Taming of the Shrew goes inside the secret world of BDSM, and King Lear exposes the ill-fated king as a possible sexual predator. Moving through the canon, it becomes abundantly clear that Literature is a conversation, and in Sex with Shakespeare, words are love. Keenan charts her life—and her romances—through the plays, as she wanders the world in search of herself, from Northern California to Oman, Spain to Singapore, Washington, DC to Somalia. From Muslim dictatorships to Buddhist republics to disputed territories, she demonstrates Shakespeare’s universality—an entry point to discuss fraught topics such as love, romance, and our most private and public selves.

Stanley Wells is one of the best-known and most versatile of Shakespeare scholars. This book, written with characteristic verve and accessibility, considers how far sexual meaning in Shakespeare's writing is a matter of interpretation by actors, directors and critics. Tracing interpretations of Shakespearean bawdy and innuendo from eighteenth-century editors to recent scholars and critics, Wells pays special attention to recent sexually orientated studies of A Midsummer Night's Dream, once regarded as the most innocent of its author's plays. He considers the Sonnets, some of which are addressed to a man, and asks whether they imply same-sex desire in the author, or are quasi-dramatic projections of the writer's imagination. Finally, he looks at how male-to-male relationships in the plays have been interpreted as sexual in both criticism and performance. Stanley Wells's lively, provocative, and open-minded book will appeal to a broad readership of students, theatregoers and Shakespeare lovers.

Following the ethos and ambition of the Shakespeare NOW! series, and harnessing the energy, challenge and vigour of the 'minigraph' form, Shakespeare and I is a provocative appeal and manifesto for a more personal form of criticism. A number of the most exciting and authoritative writers on Shakespeare examine and scrutinise their deepest, most personal and intimate responses to Shakespeare's plays and poems, to ask themselves if and how Shakespeare has made them the person they are. Their responses include autobiographical histories, reflections on their relationship to their professional, institutional or familial roles and meditations on the person-making force of religious or political conviction. A blog at http://shakespearenowseries.blogspot.com enables both contributors and readers to continue the debate about why Shakespeare keeps us reading and what that means for our lives today. The book aims to inspire readers to think and write about their ever-changing personal relationship with Shakespeare: about how the poems and plays - and writing about them - can reveal or transform our sense of ourselves.

There are chapters on the humour that Shakespeare gets out of sex in his comedies, on the ways in which he relates sexual desire to both lust and love, and a discussion of Romeo and Juliet as theplay in which in which he focuses most centrally on issues relating to sex, love, and the relationship between them. A chapter on sexual jealousy traces his treatment of the topic in four major plays. 'Sexual Experience' studies his portrayal of, mainly, older lovers, and 'Whores and Saints' looks at hisportrayals of the extremes of womanhood.

Shakespearean thinking is always dynamic: thinking that happens in the living moment of its performance, in quickly passing process. This book offers a model of human mentality that can be shown through the dense immediacy of dramatic thinking, as embodied above all in Shakespeare's working method. Shakespeare Thinking discusses the positioning of Shakespeare as the paradigm of fully human mental creativity from the Romantics to the latest neurological experiments which show that Shakespeare can reveal new understandings of the hard-wiring of the human brain, and the sheer sudden electricity of its synaptic development.
