With Eisa Stephen Greenblatt, and Jill Lepore
In the wake of the U.S. elections, we sit down with Professor Stephen Greenblatt, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Tyrant: Shakespeare on Politics and The Swerve; Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jill Lepore (These Truths: A History of the United States); and playwright and actor Eisa Davis (The Secret Lives of Bees) for an in-depth look, with brief readings from Shakespeare’s plays and poetry, at the views and versions of citizenship, social organization, and individual human dignity in Shakespeare’s plays, as well as the role of art and humanities in a modern democracy.
The event will be broadcast via The Public Theater's YouTube Channel. If you would like to attend the event via Zoom to engage in the Q&A, please RSVP at bklynlibrary.org.
