Charleston to Charleston Literary Festival presents Tyrant: Shakespeare on Power

$25

In an illuminating exercise, Stephen Greenblatt, author of Will in the World, interrogates the Collected Works to construct a checklist 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.
