Comedies, Romances, and Shakespeare's Heroines

Episode 16 | 10m 46s | Video has closed captioning.

This week we're continuing our discussion of William Shakespeare and looking at his comedies and romances. As well as something called problem plays. Some of his plays, they had problems. We'll also put on pants, escape to forest, and talk about Shakespeare's heroines, lots of whom had quite a bit more agency in these plays than the women in the tragedies had.
