My PhD research is interested in representations of the 'Lucrece' (or 'Lucretia') narrative in literature and artwork of the early modern period, between approximately 1520-1665. Examining works by a wide range of writers, designers and artists including William Shakespeare, Elizabeth Talbot (Bess of Hardwick) and Margaret Cavendish, I discuss the politically powerful nature of Lucrece's post-rape testament, and query the potential for Lucrece's (fictional) rape to undermine structures of patriarchy and monarchy within this narrative and other similar works.
