The Custom House – Episode 12: The Purse Turned Inside Out: Engendering Personalities in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night

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.
