Abstract or Introduction

The directors reinterpret the character of Gertrude to fit a more contemporary understanding of womanhood whilst considering the play’s misogyny: Zeffirelli's Gertrude represents a glorified woman, objectified by the male gaze and Doran's Gertrude an autonomous woman, who is prone to being manipulated.
