Shakespeare Afoot

10/11/2017 - 4:30pm to 6:30pm
010 East Pyne (lower level)
John Kerrigan, University of Cambridge

This lecture explores the dramaturgy of the foot in a series of
well-known Shakespeare plays, from /Richard III/ through /As You Like
It/ to /Macbeth/.  It looks at the theatrical uses of limping, pacing,
stalking, tripping and says quite a bit about wandering too.  The
arguments may stumble but there will be running jokes and hopefully
light will be shed on Shakespeare's originality.
