Shakespeare in the World Lecture Series

Two Gentlemen of Verona: Shakespeare Before He Was Shakespeare

Featuring Dr. Annalisa Castaldo, Scholar-in-Residence at The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre and Associate Professor of English at Widener University

Many scholars consider this Shakespeare’s very first play. So what is Shakespearean juvenilia like? On the good side, there’s some beautiful verse, the first female heroine to disguise herself as a boy, and noble outlaws. On the bad side, one of the “gentlemen” is a rapist and the other “gentleman” offers the rapist the woman he loves as a token of their friendship. 

This event will take place in room 108 in Parkway Central Library from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. To register, click here.
