This study seeks to both challenge and complicate the assumed heteronormativity of Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice, Twelfth Night, and Othello. Reading and analyzing these texts in such a manner provides the only means to access and interpret the homoerotics embedded deeply within them in a meaningful way that, in turn, enhances traditional understanding of Renaissance England.
