Shakespeare Speaker Series Guests 1

Lloyd Kermode and Martine van Elk, professors of English at California State University Long Beach, and co-directors of the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at CSULB, will present “Shakespeare on Stage and Page.”  How were plays performed in Shakespeare’s England? What did audiences expect from a production in Shakespeare’s lifetime? What did the plays look like once they were printed? And what do the printed texts that we read now tell us (and not tell us) about Shakespeare? These are questions that this presentation will address before inviting discussion about how we might be similar and different audiences and readers from those that experienced Shakespeare four centuries ago and 5,450 miles away. A reception with the professors will follow the presentation.
