Kung-yu Chin asks about the medieval heritage of Elizabethan drama.  I
shamelessly recommend *Shakespeare and the Dramaturgy of Power* (Princeton,
1989). Also useful and important:  Robert Weimann, *Shakespeare and the Popular
Tradition in the Theater* (Johns Hopkins, 1978) and Walter Cohen, *Drama of a
Nation* (Cornell, 1985).

Another older work that is very rich on the medieval tradition is
A.P.Rossiter's. I forget the exact title, but something like Medieval
backgrounds to Jacobean drama.

I agree with you. The apprehension of her character would be independent of
whether a man or woman played her, so that modern productions in which a woman
portrays her would lose nothing by the change.
