“The Influence of the Jacobean Court on Shakespeare’s Plays” presented by Lonnie Somer.
A war that never seems to end, a mysterious disease that surfaces seemingly randomly and often kills swiftly, protests by the common people against the 1% who own 99% of the country’s wealth, deep societal divisions based on religious beliefs, a terrorist plot, covert government surveillance, and uncertainty over the transition of the country’s leadership. Stories ripped from today’s headlines? Actually, events that influenced Shakespeare’s writing during the reign of King James. Come to History Seminar to hear why the Bard was both a man of his time and timeless.
Location: Building 3, room 102
