“Juliet’s Nurse: Writing Premodern Desire” Lois Leveen
Boise State University Group for Early Modern Studies
In Juliet’s Nurse (Simon & Shuster, 2014), scholar-turned-novelist Lois Leveen offers a detailed exploration of female sexuality in Trecento Italy, by reimagining Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet with the nurse (who has the third largest number of lines in the play) as the narrator and protagonist. In Shakespeare’s drama and in Leveen’s retelling, Angelica is a bawdy, loving figure whose physicality, as both the wife of “a merry man” and a hired wet nurse, occupies the intersections of sexual and maternal desire. Juliet’s Nurse draws on scholarly research on the religious coding of maternal and marital desires, medieval childbirth and lactation practices, and premodern beliefs about sexual health, to imagine the life of a woman whose intense sexual, physical, and emotional attachments are set against an era beset by plague. In her talk, Leveen will discuss using fiction to disseminate academic research to general audiences. (She also promises to show the most entertaining Romeo and Juliet clip you will ever see!)
