Public Shakespeare Presents: The Art of Known and Feeling Sorrows: Faith, Poetry, and King Lear

PUBLIC SHAKESPEARE PRESENTS: THE ART OF KNOWN AND FEELING SORROWS: FAITH, POETRY, AND KING LEAR

Anspacher Theater
December 9, 2019

With Kate Burton, Danielle Chapman, Christian Wiman, and more

Is King Lear a sacred text? Why is it that, in spite of its story of unbearable loss and wisdom gained too late, we can feel a spiritual presence coursing through its lines? How does the play’s poetry—in its various attempts to recover, retell, or at least name the values that a corrupt and morally blinded world opposes and outlaws—point towards something transcendent? Join commentators, and spouses, Christian Wiman (poet, Yale Divinity School professor, and author of My Bright Abyss: Meditation of a Modern Believer) and Danielle Chapman (fellow poet, Yale professor, and author of Delinquent Palaces) for a moving exploration of poetry’s ability to come to terms with the worlds of suffering, injustice, and despair.
