Subject:     Sunday, April 28 Seminar on Coriolanus at Shakespeare Theatre in DC


The program has just been announced for the Sunday, April 28 seminar, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. It will be on their current two plays, Shakespeare’s Coriolanus and Schiller’s Wallenstein. Former Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky adapted Schiller’s play, and will speak at the seminar. 


Other speakers will include the theater’s Artistic Director, Michael Kahn; Alan Cheuse of George Mason University, who reviews books for NPR; and Howard University’s Norman Sandridge, Associate Professor of Classics and expert on leadership in the ancient world. 


Since Coriolanus’s assertive mother compares herself to a “poor hen,” I’ll be talking about “A Psychoanalytic Perspective on the Character  of Coriolanus: The ‘Hen’ is Mightier than the Sword.”
