[CW: Rape, assault, gas-lighting, consent, colonialism, murder] Samantha Puc (@theverbalthing) joins host Emily Edwards (@MsEmilyEdwards) to BREAK HER BRAIN around the idea of reliable narration, colonialism as disruption, and the veil of choice in regards to Shakespeare's final play, THE TEMPEST. As it turns out? It ain't about playwriting, folks. THE TEMPEST is a blatantly anti-monarch, anti-colonialism, anti-patriarchy play that was Shakespeare's "curtain call" from London Society and playwriting. What can we glean from his text that'll tell us how he really felt about Queen Elizabeth and English society?  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/fuckboisoflit/support
Rachel Vorona Cote joins host Emily Edwards to talk about her upcoming book TOO MUCH: How Victorian Constraints Still Bind Women Today. A deeply moving combination of memoir and literary research, this book will leave you as breathless as a cinched corset. Rachel and I discuss the concept of "muchness," how we relate to Victorian mores and heroines, and how we can move past the Victorian expectations of race, sexuality, and gender.

Playwright and author Claire Willett (@ClaireWillett) joins host Emily Edwards (@MsEmilyEdwards) to discuss one of the English language's most popular books– Daphne du Maurier's REBECCA. Since its first publication in 1938, REBECCA has never gone out of print, proving Maxim de Winter, the Second Mrs. de Winter, Mrs. Danvers, and almost every other character in the entire novel to be some of literature's most enduring fuckbois. We take on the text as the emblematic novel of the push-pull of heteronormative patriarchy, discuss the essential factors or race and class, and also ruminate on REBECCA as a queer text, thanks to some new details neither reader knew before recording! This is Fuckbois of Literature. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/fuckboisoflit/support
