  • Shakespeare and Classical Authors – RSA Conference 2015
    Berlin, 26-28th March 2015
    This session will investigate Shakespeare's self-schooling in authorship through his reading of classical authors--the rediscovered representatives of secular antiquity. Rather than assessing whether Shakespeare was "a classicist," let us focus on his multidisciplinary reading both in terms of strategic literary re-deployment as well as in terms of his self-development as an author. What might Shakespeare have gained in techniques, motifs or themes to be extracted, imitated, altered, rearranged, or avoided? In addition to narrative, dramatic and poetic elements such as character, plot, symbol, metaphor, what are the further implications of having had exposure any particular individual author--what could we say about the influence of the things left out? In short, can we assess how Greek and Roman predecessors in their "author function" presented models for the continual unfolding self-development of one important Renaissance English author?
