The sweet war man is dead and rotten: Frances Yates and the Shakespearean culture hero

A Cultural Histories at Kingston event with Professor Richard Wilson.

This lecture interprets the research of Warburg School scholar Frances Yates within the cultural landscape of the Great War. Professor Wilson situates Yates's reading of Shakespeare's Loves Labours Lost and other plays in the context of post-World War One pan-European peace hopes, and more technically in the context of the Warburg emigration from Hamburg to London.

A wine reception will follow in the Picton Room. All welcome.
