Tyrant: Shakespeare on Power

Sat, Nov 10, 2018 at 4pm

This event has passed.

In an illuminating exercise, Stephen Greenblatt, author of Will in the World, interrogates the Collected Works to construct a check-list of tyranny based on Shakespeare's plays. Can he demonstrate that the power dynamics in Shakespeare's dramas have contemporary resonance? Stephen Greenblatt, Harvard Professor of Humanities, is author of The Swerve and The Rise and Fall of Adam and Eve. Chaired by Geoffrey Harpham, former Director of the National Humanities Center.
