ABSTRACT
Argues that Percy B. Shelley's play `The Cenci' provides a feminist reader with a particularly useful textual instance to investigate not just abominable incidents of paternal tyranny and parricide but much more complex operations of violence, law and desire that intersect with gender issues. Discussion of Shelley's preface to the play; Representation of the character Beatrice; Excerpts.
