Comment:        Re: SHK 15.1186 Representing Incest in Genealogy

For what it's worth (and since this conversation is becoming more
general), I surveyed some of the anthropological literature on incest
theory in the beginning of an essay on The Duchess of Malfi (PMLA 1985;
rpt. with some revisions in Seizures of the Will, Cambridge 1996). The
bibliography might be useful to anyone wanting to read more. (I don't
answer the original question that started this thread.) Cf. also Richard
McCabe's Incest, Drama, and Nature's Law 1500-1700 (CUP 1993).
