Sexuality and Eroticism on the Renaissance Stage CHARLES R. FORKER Indiana University It can hardly be denied that Renaissance drama, at least in its English manifestation, constitutes a body of plays as highly charged with eroticism and as profoundly concerned with questions of sexuality as any in history.

The erotic is the stuff of legend, but also of daily life. It is inextricable from relations of power and subordination and is plays a fundamental role in the heirarchical social structures of the period. The erotic is also very much a part of the spiritual realm, often in morally ambiguous ways.
