Lucretia without Poniard: Pieter Corneliszoon Hooft’s Geeraerdt van Velsen between Livy and Tacitus

P. 72-85.

In this study we set ourselves the goal of examining the figure of the female protagonist

of Pieter Corneliszoon Hooft’s historical tragedy Geeraerdt van Velsen

(1613), Machtelt van Velsen, in its connection with the classical “archetypical

rape victim” Lucretia, transformed by Livy into an exemplum of republican

virtus, feminine gloria, conjugal modestia, and castitas.
