Shakespeare Among the Courtesans by Duncan Salkeld


Paying special attention to Anglo-Italian cultural and sexual relations during the Renaissance, this study traces the development and decline of the courtesan in English drama. Salkeld draws on original historical materials to explore contradictory dramatic representations of courtesans in a variety of texts ranging from Shakespeare's poems and plays to works by Aretino, Nashe, Dekker and Middleton.
