Join us at this Inventions of the Text seminar.
This seminar will shed light on the understanding of ‘Revenge and/as Imperial Roman Satire in Titus Andronicus’. Professor Perry will read the play’s ending as drawing on the energies of Roman satire to intentionally indecorous effect, and present the Rome of Titus as a version of Shakespeare’s Rome. He will also give general remarks about his latest book Shakespeare and Senecan Tragedy.
