  • Female Identity in Feminist Adaptations of Shakespeare investigates female identity in three particular feminist adaptations of Shakespeare: Ophelia by Bryony Lavery, Lear’s Daughters by the Women’s Theatre Group and Elaine Feinstein, and Desdemona: A Play About a Handkerchief, written by Paula Vogel. It outlines the basic standpoints on adaptation, feminism, female identity and feminist Shakespeare criticism. Feminist adaptations of Shakespeare are deeply rooted in and linked with feminist interpretations of Shakespeare and female identity in feminist adaptations is depicted as a social construct made up of a range of elements. The book examines the characters of feminist plays such as Ophelia, Desdemona or Cordelia, who are shifted into unusual or sometimes even bizarre contexts and are equipped with deeply developed motivation and identity, thus they encourage us to examine old concepts and authorities from a completely different point of view.
