Ernie Richards – Shakespeare's Women In Love: The women characters in Shakespeare’s plays (2014) "This booklet is about the women characters in Shakespeare’s plays, and how he portrays them. He does what no other writer has done – or could do. He presents women as the one force in society capable of saving mankind from itself: the essential earth-mother, the nurturing force behind everything born, and the solver of problems. He shows that women can be the main force in society for civilising men, for curbing their instincts to fight and kill, and to replace those violent impulses with the gentler arts of tolerance, love and forgiveness."     ~ and
