Subject: Age of Consent
Do comic / parodic texts take a different view of the issue from the
'official' texts? It seems to me that comic writing over the centuries
has often poked fun at and deliberately taken liberty with moral norms
to achieve effect, and / or is maybe rather closer to custom and
practice 'on the ground' as it were. Might that be true of Shakespeare
And in passing as author of the original posting may I thank all list
members for their typically generous help on this topic.
