The Rape of Lucrece
  • Play
  • The Rape of Lucrece is an brutal 1594 narrative poem by William Shakespeare giving an account of the crime of rape and its dreadful consequences for victim and perpetrator.

    As ever, though, Shakespeare goes beyond the obvious, following the ramifications of the crime wherever they take him, shining a light on a band of human behaviour encompassing the bestial and the beautiful.
