The Victorian Cult of Shakespeare Reading Group

Join us at 4pm on Wednesday, March 3 for an event celebrating our very own Charles LaPorte’s new book, The Victorian Cult of Shakespeare: Bardology in the Nineteenth Century, out now from Cambridge University Press. Charles will give a short talk about his book at the beginning of the event, and then there will be plenty of time for discussion.

Prior to the event, we will be reading the Introduction and parts V and VI of Chapter One. Readings will be made available to those who register for the event. You can also listen to Charles talking about his book on the Folger Shakespeare Library podcast Shakespeare Unlimited by clicking here.

This event will take place on Zoom. Registration required:
