Presentation of Gender and Sexuality in Any Two Comic Playdocx
By Rita Olowa
Celia latter stands for herself, this is seen in act three when she protests corvine for prostituting her out to volpone in other to gain his riches. She says to corvine, “sir, let me beseech you, affect not these strange trials; if you doubt my chastity, why lock me up forever……” in this situation, Celia only hopes for God to rescue her from this situation. This essay seeks to unravel the reasons as to why masculinity is threatened by female strength and autonomy, not to victimize the female characters within Johnson’s play.
