What does a Shakespeare editor do and why does it matter to the general reader? How does our understanding of King Lear change in important ways when we compare the two published texts of the play? Why, in moments of intense emotion, do Shakespeare’s characters—Lady Macbeth, Juliet, King Lear—address forces in the universe in a rhetorical figure known as the apostrophe?
The Newberry celebrates the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s First Folio with three distinguished Shakespeare scholars who will bring us closer to understanding this great playwright.
Three Sessions, $200 ($180 for Newberry members, seniors, and students). Led by Suzanne Gossett, Gail Kern Paster, and Richard Strier
Registration is $200
