Second Annual E. Beatrice Batson Shakespeare Lecture In-Person
Shakespeare in (and on) the Margins: The Lesser Told Story of C.S. Lewis’ Readerly and Writerly Engagement(s) with Shakespeare
A lecture by Dr. Sarah Waters
Although better known as an apologist, children’s writer, or medievalist, C.S. Lewis also engaged deeply with the works of William Shakespeare. In this talk, Dr. Waters will examine the different and varied ways Lewis explored Shakespeare (and his critics), and his reliance on Shakespeare as a frame of reference pointing not only to the immediate stories, characters, and themes, or even to his own extensive Renaissance learning, but using Shakespeare also to point towards The Story.
Dr. Sarah Waters is Lecturer in English Literature and Honorary Junior Research Fellow at the University of Buckingham.
This event is free and open to the public.
This event is co-sponsored by the E. Beatrice Batson Shakespeare Society and the Marion E. Wade Center
