Quote of the month: “Most of Shakespeare’s heroes and heroines are motherless. The few mothers who do appear in Shakespeare’s plays are anything but motherly, from the cannibal mother Tamora in Titus Andronicus to the neurotically affected mother of Juliet, the mother of Richard III who curses her womb and the Countess of Rossillion in All’s Well That Ends Well who simply dislikes her son. At best mothers are ineffectual.” (Germaine Greer’s Shakespeare’s Wife)
