Key Learning Centre, Oxford Castle Shakespeare's Arabic Sonnets with Dr Robert Stagg - Thursday 25 April 2024, 5.30pm
Dr Robert Stagg is a Shakespearean and early modernist whose principal research interests are in literary form. Robert is currently working on a book provisionally titled Shakespeare’s Worldly Style which rethinks scholarly descriptions of a ‘Global Shakespeare’ by considering the involvement of Shakespearean poetic form with a suite of international poetic traditions, from Arabic lyric to early American writing. This lecture will draw on these themes as Robert discusses the Arabic pre-history of Shakespeare's sonnets.
