  • Résumé

Evidence found in legal and literary texts from early modern England undermines and complicates any notions of a monolithic, stable ideal of female conduct. This study of over 5000 folios of court depositions contemporary with Shakespeare's plays demonstrates the complex ways those plays participate in and comment upon their culture.
