Mother Queens and Princely Sons : Rogue Madonnas in the Age of Shakespeare Hardback
by Sid Ray
Part of the Queenship and Power series
This study explores representations of the Madonna and Child in early modern culture.
It considers the mother and son as a conceptual, religio-political unit and examines the ways in which that unit was embodied and performed.
Of primary interest is the way mothers derived agency from bearing incipient rulers.
