This week’s podcast includes a continuation of our two month-long discussion of As You Like It, with a dive into that pool we call bawdy… so if you’re easily offended, skip to the 12:35 mark in the podcast for one last video review.
[EXPLICIT CONTENT AHEAD… SKIP IF EASILY OFFENDED] The following podcast contains adult subject matter, childish humor, and inappropriate language. OK, let’s start off by saying that despite Eric Partridge calling As You Like It a “comparative(ly) innocuous” in his book Shakespeare’s Bawdy (Partridge, Eric. New York: Routledge Classics, 2001; page 58), the play is not completely clean… as we shall see… so stop now before you run the risk of blushing…
[CONTENT REDACTED (to be edited and restored at a later date): In this podcast, I made reference to Dr. Pauline Kiernan’s work and book on bawdy in the Bard, Filthy Shakespeare; in doing so, I have offended her by my tone and use of her material. I apologize for the offense, and have thus redacted the reference.]
