SARC Summer Seminar Aug. 9-14, 2010

From SARC Director Dan Wright:

The 2010 Summer Seminar at the Shakespeare Authorship Research Centre at Concordia University is scheduled for August 9-14, 2010. I want to get this information out so that you can register now and be assured a seat at the seminar. Registration is limited to 20 participants.

The focus of the week-long study session will be “The Shakespeare Apocrypha.” I will lead the seminar through a study of the plays (and a few of the poems) that sometime have been argued as integral to the Shakespeare canon but which, for various reasons, rarely have garnered enough support to make it into the more established publications of the canon — The Two Noble Kinsmen excepted. We’ll discuss canonicity itself and amongst the works sometimes attributed to the writer who called himself Shakespeare, we’ll devote particular attention during the week to at least the following: “A Funeral Elegie” and “A Lover’s Complaint,” as well as several plays, including Arden of Feversham, Edmund Ironside, Edward III, Thomas of Woodstock (aka Richard II, Part One), Locrine, The Two Noble Kinsmen, Fair Em and The Birth of Merlin. We may get a chance to look at some others, too, such as Sir John Oldcastle and The Wisdom of Doctor Dodypoll.
