Rome Season Two

Stacie Raucci

Edinburgh University Press

The chapter, “Revenge and Rivalry in Rome,” by Stacie Raucci, looks at the gendered dynamics of vengeance as a dominant theme in the second season of the series Rome. This chapter explores how revenge is developed as a specific theme through the delineation of the sex, gender, and power hierarchies of several pairs of rivals. This chapter utilizes the tools of feminist film theory to evaluate Rome’s depiction of both female and male vengeance within the context of recent cinema.

Keywords:   Rome, revenge, rivalry, gender, feminist film theory
