“Shakespeare’s Secret Book”–Elizabeth Scala (UT Austin)
March 22, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Dr. Scala will be discussing the editions of Chaucer that were published in the sixteenth century and that can provide a cultural background for Shakespeare’s relation to Chaucer’s works, a relation that had all but been undone by the New Historicism. She will be arguing for new ways to approach Chaucer as a source for various texts by Shakespeare by looking beyond the relations of a single work of Chaucer for any particular play.
