Versions of The Winter's Tale: Theater, Literature, Film, and Philosophy
SEMINAR DATES: June 23-28, 2013
Shakespeare's astonishingly experimental romance The Winter's Tale has sponsored a fascinating series of literary, philosophical, and cinematic reflections. This seminar examines the afterlives of The Winter's Tale as "the book of second chances." We will examine together the winter's tales of Jane Austen (Persuasion), George Eliot (Daniel Deronda), Eric Rohmer (Contes d'Hiver), Isak Dinesen (Winter's Tales), Jill Paton Walsh (A Desert in Bohemia), Elizabeth Taylor (A Game of Hide and Seek), and Pedro Almodóvar (Volver and Talk to Her).
SEMINAR LEADER: Sarah Beckwith, Professor, Theater Studies, Duke University
