shakespeareThis will be a five-session program on reading Shakespeare’s great history play Henry VIII. In each of the five weeks we will discuss Shakespeare’s play one act at a time. This program will allow the participants to put the play in a variety of contexts, such as its relationship to his other works and to the modern existential world. Tom Bulger, Shakespeare Scholar and former professor at Siena College will lead this workshop. Please read Act One for the first session on January 9th. Copies of the play are available at the circulation desk.
