Theodore Leinwand - The Great William: Writers Reading Shakespeare

Saturday, May 21, 2016 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

This insightful exploration of how seven writers read Shakespeare is as illuminating about the Bard as it is about Coleridge, Keats, Woolf, Olson, Berryman, Ginsburg, and Ted Hughes. Using his subjects’ finished criticism as well as their letters, journals, and marginalia, Leinwand, a University of Maryland professor of English, consulting editor for The Shakespeare Quarterly, and the author of The City Staged and Theatre, Finance, and Society in Early Modern England, gives us a valuable look at the intellectual and personal meanings Shakespeare held for these writers and shows where they were most engaged, puzzled, troubled, and astonished by what they read.
