Enter the body : women and representation on Shakespeare's stage

She demonstrates how ignoring physical presencing on stage can undermine textual comprehension. For each chapter, a single female character provides the focus that anchors an analysis of modern British productions supported by historical references, informative notes, and a useful bibliography. What gives the book life, however, is Rutter's take on theatre as a performative act of re-membering, spiked with her irreverent British wit.

In the preface Rutter states: My business is to pay attention to that 'excessive' performance text, to register and analyze it" xiii. Her first chapter, "Body Parts or Parts for Bodies: Speculating on Cordelia" examines Cordelia, dead in the arms of Lear, re-presenting that "play's troubled interests"--as a kind of "memento mori" that bonds characters and audience in "doing grief work" The corpse becomes an instructive object not only as a theatrical text but also as a social text. In the second chapter, "Snatched bodies: Ophelia in the grave," another female corpse serves the author as an example of Shakespeare's subversive dramaturgy.

Rutter deems the burial scene Hamlet 5. She analyzes four Hamlet films Olivier, ; Kozintsev, ; Zeffirelli, ; Branagh, , demonstrating in each some form of misogynistic, semiotically confused, even illiterate Branagh rendering of Ophelia. After a detailed scene analysis, she proffers her own directorial fantasy with the corpse relentlessly present center stage as a realistic drowning victim, the designated onlooker whose lifeless presence mocks all heroic pretensions.
