Coriolanus 101

In this episode, we get all hot and bothered over Coriolanus (and Aufidius, too... #CoryandAufy5Ever)! The Rhetorical Device of the Week is epanalepsis; the Burbage Break is a list of book recommendations* in honor of Women's History Month; we play "Jess Fails at Shakespeare" once more; and in our Tips and Tidbits we talk about some weird textual anomalies and make the case for why Coriolanus and Aufidius are #hottt for each other. We also treat you to a sexy reading of the sexiest soliloquy of all time. #MAKETHEMKISS #yourewelcome
