Placing the reproductive female body centre-stage in Shakespeares theatre, Laoutaris ranges beyond the domestic sphere in order to recuperate the wider intellectual, epistemological, and archaeological significance of maternity to the Renaissance imagination.

Focusing on anatomy in Hamlet, natural history in The Tempest, demonology in Macbeth, and heraldry in Antony and Cleopatra, this book reveals the ways in which the maternal body was figured in, and in turn contributed towards the re-conceptualisation of, bodies of knowledge. Laoutaris argues that Shakespeare resists a monolithic concept of motherhood, presenting instead a range of contested maternities which challenge the distinctive ways of knowing these early disciplines worked to impose on the order of created nature.
