Self-Loathing, Recrimination, and Betrayal: "Love" in Shakespeare's Sonnets

Programs for Teachers
Newberry Teachers' Consortium
Thursday, November 13, 2008

This seminar will examine the rhetorical and psychological complexities of some of Shakespeare’s sonnets.  Participants will examine how Shakespeare uses the form to get his effects (or struggles with the form to do so), while also getting some sense of the range of styles that Shakespeare employs in these extraordinary poems.

Seminar led by Richard Strier, University of Chicago
