Need Research Sources for Romeo and Juliet or Much Ado About Nothing!
Hey there! Here’s what we’ve got…
We have a couple of sources on this subject relating to Romeo and Juliet and also the representation of some other notable women in other works by Shakespeare on our site already:
Both of these sources come from the British Library, which is a great resource for literature analysis and in-depth reviews, especially for Shakespeare. Here’s another one from BL covering Much Ado About Nothing:
The link below leads to a publication by Cambridge University which is very long and covers all of Much Ado About Nothing. On page 67 you can find a section titled “The place of women in a patriarchal world” which is a part of the “What was Shakespeare’s England Like?” portion which gives readers context of the world in which most of his works were written. Also, under “Critical Approaches” you will find a section titled “Feminist and political criticisms” on page 94.
These resources may be helpful as well:
Hope this helps,
