Abstract

This work imagines and enacts Jankowski’s lesbian void in Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale, while at the same time interrogating the relationships between silence, death and the (queer/female) body. This original work appropriates images, characters, settings and phrases from the Shakespearean text into new stories and situations, making them perform queered identities and experiences. This method of reworking and queering images and identities/characters involves the use of alogical processes of association:
supporting Freud’s ‘reciprocal relations’ between dissimilars (1900: 404) and
Froeschels’s assertion that ‘the subconscious considers similarity identical with
identity’ (in Mavromatis 1987: 178).
