authors@mit presents Diana Henderson on 11/14 (Tuesday), 5:30 pm

Posted November 9th, 2006 by Jim Eggleston
Please join us as MIT’s Diana Henderson discusses her new book,
“Collaborations with the Past.” By concentrating on rich yet problematic
instances of Shakespeare’s reanimation in such quintessentially modern forms
as the novel and film, from Sir Walter Scott’s “Kenilworth” to Kenneth
Branagh’s “Henry V”, Diana Henderson sketches a complex history of the
pleasures and difficulties that ensue when Shakespeare and modern artists
collaborate.

Location: MIT 32-155, Stata Center, 32 Vassar Street, Cambridge

Time: November 14 (Tuesday), 5:30 pm

This event is free and wheelchair accessible.
