Lecturer: Dr. Ronald Meyers

Apr 4, 2019 | Eunice and Julian Cohen Pavilion

Shakespeare had a great interest in politics because of the momentous impact regarding the conflict between the religious sects of Catholics and Protestants in England and throughout the continent at the time. He came to London and wrote about kings and their conflicts with their subjects. This lecture will demonstrate how his plays explore these topics in ways that relate to our current political discourse.
