Who loves talking historical smack? In this episode, English Renaissance scholar Liz Rodriguez and nerdy laywoman Nicole Keating discuss libellous poetry. The Tudors and Stuarts had a knack for writing poems for every occasion, like acute political jealousy or petty neighborhood quarrels. Hear some examples from this raunchy jaunt through the archive available by earlystuartlibels.net! And check out their review of a production of Shakespeare's Measure for Measure by London's Cheek By Jowl & Moscow's Pushkin Theater at the top of the show.
