Here’s a link to a now-opening production of Macbeth in lower Manhattan. Anyone want to join me & my u/g class sometime before they close at the end of September?
Here’s an invitation to a day of talks about Macbeth at Farleigh Dickinson U in Madison, NJ, on Oct 16. What better way to spend a nice fall weekend? I’m talking about blue and green ecologies at 1 pm. All are welcome, and it’s free.
Here’s a cover image of The Tempest from a 1707 ed of Shakespeare’s Works that I used in the opening case of the Folger show last summer. If you look at the terror on the faces of the mariners, the demonic glee of Ariel in the clouds, & the bemused unconcern of Prospero on shore (hard to see on the left hand side), it’s a pretty good image of grad school in English.
Please comment below & read this image back for me: do you see a different allegory, of teaching or learning or something else?
(This’ll give me a chance to test the comments, & to approve each of you as a commentor for the blog going forward.)
