Thursdays from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

Shakespeare, like many Renaissance writers, borrowed liberally from other authors, particularly the ancients, for plots and characters in his plays. One of the most frequent theft victims was the poet Ovid, whose work Metamorphoses remains a major source for early tales and legends, mythological in nature. In these sessions we’ll talk about how Shakespeare may steal, but he certainly enlightens and transforms his sources in Macbeth and A Midsummer Night’s Dream — showing how imitation may go beyond flattery to genius.

Dr. Susan Jones, associate professor of English, specializes in Renaissance and Medieval literature and has presented papers on Shakespeare and other topics at numerous national and international conferences including the International Medieval Congress at Leeds.

Dr. Beate Rodewald, associate professor of English, specializes in the connections between literature and the other arts, with a particular interest in literary theory and utopian literature.
