Reconsidering Traditional Myths in Timberlake Wertenbaker’s The Love of the Nightingale and Paula Vogel’s Desdemona. A Play about a Handkerchief, autor Corina Lungu

The purpose of this book is to analyze Timberlake Wertenbaker’s The Love of the Nightingale and Paula Vogel’s Desdemona. A Play about a Handkerchief in relation to the hypotexts they are based on, i.e. Ovid’s Metamorphoses and Shakespeare’s Othello. The contemporary plays provide the traditional myths with new meanings, challenging the audience to reconsider certain aspects of the “stories” they are familiar with. By foregrounding the female characters who had previously been peripheral, Wertenbaker and Vogel shed light on what could have been, but was never told, i.e. the female side of the myth.
