Shakespeare scholar Stephen Booth will present a lecture entitled “Go, Dog. Go!: A Map of the Beautiful” on Monday, Feb. 27, at 5:15 p.m. in the Nott Memorial.
The work of Booth, a professor at the University of California at Berkeley, includes close readings of a wide range of texts, from an extensive commentary on Shakespeare’s Sonnets that has been a central resource in the field for over 30 years, to a more recent close study of texts such as the Gettysburg Address and Shakespeare’s "Twelfth Night" in his book "Precious Nonsense." Refreshments will be served.
