FREE: Shakespeare’s Birthday Lecture 2010: Jonathan Bate at the Folgers April 26th – “The Good Life in Shakespeare”

Jonathan Bate

Shakespeare’s Birthday Lecture in Washington DC
Jonathan Bate on “The Good Life in Shakespeare”.
Professor Bate will discuss the Epicurean tradition through As You Like It, The Winter’s Tale, and Measure for Measure.

Everyone knows I love the word FREE! Well here is a free lecture by the author of several books on Shakespeare who also does features for BBC’s Radio 4. I really wish I could make this, but I have to travel on business that week and will be out of town. But will definitely make it if plans change.

From the Folgers web site: “Jonathan Bate, professor of English at Warwick, will speak on “The Good Life in Shakespeare” and about the Epicurean tradition, with an emphasis on the plays As You Like It, The WInter’s Tale, and Measure for Measure. He is the author of The Genius of Shakespeare and a Governor and Board member of the Royal Shakespeare Company.”
