Seminar for Teachers: Shakespeare’s Sonnets

Sabato 02 aprile 2016 -
17:00 a 19:00

The third in the series, this lecture focuses on Shakespeare’s sonnet sequence and positions it in relation to the courtly love tradition as vehicled through the sonnet.
It aims to show how Shakespeare stretched the most conventionalised of poetic forms in order to convey a stark and uncompromising realism.
