Ten Things I Learned From Shakespeare
Shakespeare was familiar with "wisdom traditions," which in the early modern period included the practice of collecting maxims, proverbs and wise sayings. In this lecture, Michael Witmore, Director of the Folger Shakespeare Library, looks at Shakespeare's plays themselves as a kind of wisdom literature - presenting ten ideas that can be carried away from his dramatic works and applied to situations we encounter today. The lecture was co-sponsored by the John Carter Brown Library, the Department of English, and the Department of Comparative Literature.
