This was torture to read. It is so full of misogyny that I barely could stand it. It is an accurate representation of women’s situation back then, I think from what I know about the great chain of being etc. But to read it like this, to watch Katherine be so abused and destroyed, women only chosen for their worth, objectified and treated worse than dogs…it made me angry. Which might or might not have been Shakespeare’s intention but since I don’t believe in trying to find out what the author’s intention was, I won’t go down than road.
