Some consider the erotic effect of Shakespeares language- others are concerned with expressions of desire (male, female, inter-racial, homosexual and heterosexual) in performance as well as text. Many are reprinted from Shakespeare Survey. They are introduced by Ann Thompsons survey of the topic in recent criticism, and conclude with a new essay by Celia Daileader on nudity in Shakespeare films.
