Author Talk with Dr. Kiernan Ryan
April 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Join author Dr. Kiernan Ryan to discuss his recent book, “Shakespeare’s Universality: Here’s Fine Revolution,” with Issac Green.
Through close readings of a wide range of plays and poems, Kiernan Ryan’s compelling polemic sets out to reclaim the idea of Shakespeare’s timeless universality from reactionary and radical critics alike. Its argument is driven throughout by the belief that at this moment in history, the need to recognize and activate the revolutionary potential of Shakespeare’s drama is more urgent than ever.
The volume has been shortlisted for the European Society for the Study of English 2016 Award for the best critical study in English language literature.
