The Custom House – The Purse Turned Inside Out: Engendering Personalities in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night (Extended Conversation w/Linda Charnes)
On this episode of The Custom House we’ll investigate the erotic entanglements of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night to try to find out just who wears the pants in this comedy.
In this episode of The Custom House we discuss the way attraction is personal and often independent of social codes and biology. Joined by Linda Charnes, a professor in the English Department at Indiana University whose work focuses on the uses of Shakespeare in the arenas of mass culture, literature, film, and contemporary international politics, we discuss Shakespeare’s mid-career comedy Twelfth Night, or What You Will.
This extended cut deepens the discussion as we look more extensively at the way social codes inhibit and limit “what we will” in our lives. We also discuss the uses of Shakespeare directly or as inspiration in pop culture such as in the “Shakespearean” television program Deadwood.
“The Handmaid’s Tale” is set in a dystopian future Cambridge, Massachusetts that, following a revolution, is now a part of the theocratic Republic of Gilead, Atwood’s novel, published in 1985, is narrated by a thirty-year-old woman, called Offred. Writing after the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979 and the rise of fundamentalist television evangelism and the Christian Coalition, Atwood imagined a world in which some women had become “walking wombs” in service of the state. The novel won the Arthur C. Clark Award in 1987 and provides a devastating rebuttal to arguments for state control of a woman’s body. It is among the 100 most challenged books in US schools. A warning to our listeners: This work contains adult language and subject matter which may not be appropriate for younger audiences.
About this author: Born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on November 18, 1939, Margaret Eleanor Atwood is an award-winning writer who has published over fifteen volumes of poetry, nine collections of short fiction, and twelve novels. Her thirteenth novel and the third book in the “Oryx and Crake” trilogy, “MaddAddam”, will be released on September 3, 2013. She lives in Toronto with her partner, fellow novelist Graeme Gibson. She claims to write “speculative fiction” or “social science fiction” rather than science fiction, because her novels do not contain nonexistent technology.
