Shakespeare assignment: The Rape of Lucrece

The eyes of men without an orator;
What needeth then apology be made
To set forth that which is so singular?

Oh, yes, the gaze.. so obvious.
Have you read Count Nulin by Pushkin? In that poem he explores the question what if it had occured to Lucrece to slap Tarquin.. =)

It reminds me of a Botticelli painting :The Birth of Venus I saw in Florence. Beautiful lighting
