Enter the Body offers a series of provocative case studies of the work women's bodies do on Shakespeare's intensely body-conscious stage. Rutter's topics are sex, death, race, gender, culture, politics, and the excessive performative body that exceeds the playtext it inhabits. As well as drawing upon vital primary documents from Shakespeare's day, Rutter offers close readings of women's performance's on stage and film in Britian today, from Peggy Ashcroft's (white) Cleopatra and Whoopi Goldberg's (whiteface) African Queen to Sally Dexter's languorous Helen and Alan Howard's raver 'Queen' of Troy.The immediate effect of the corset was to eroticize Cordelia, to invite spectators to look at her as they hadna#39;t looked before ... its titillation - which both restricts and reveals - troped womena#39;s a#39;faultya#39; sexuality and the punishment it deserved.
