Talk about the discrimination and limited roles of women during the Renaissance. Fran Teague examines the role of women in the Renaissance -- not the Lucrezia Borgias or Isabella d'Estes, but the women who never made it into the history books. The program starts with a hypothetical biography of William Shakespeare's hypothetical sister Judith, who had many of her brother's gifts, but none of his opportunities. Included in the tape are three Spanish songs from the Renaissance: one a wooing song, one a wedding song, and a song from a wife to her husband who has gone off to the wars. Completely self-contained. Does not need intro or outro. This tape announces itself.
