    schema:description ". For the male character, a crisis of masculinity is provoked by the pressures of forging satisfying bonds with other men and performing a gender ideal that calls simultaneously for predation on, and protection of sexual property. Yarbro-Bejarano highlights his conflicted relationship with the symbolic father, as well as the texts obsessive representation of his loss of control, caused by the very codes that purport to secure it."@en ;

    schema:description "Yarbro-Bejarano's provocative conclusion explores the ways in which the plays' production and consumption conform to the author's role as cultural mediator and to the audience's potential for multiple and contestatory responses. The pleasure of such negotiations and of witnessing the predicaments of both male and female characters trapped by contradictory constructs of gender and sexuality, helps explain the popularity of this subgenre."@en ;

    schema:description "She takes into account plays that reveal their conventional, formulaic views of the Christian feminine ideal as well as those whose variety and flexibility present women subverting their expected roles.
