Literary Tales Ep. 8: Shakespeare, Politics as Tragedy

In this lecture we examine Shakespeare’s tragedies and note the importance that all of his tragedies are intensely political plays. In this lecture, exposing the tragic nature of politics, we discuss Hamlet, Julius Caesar, and Antony & Cleopatra.

This lecture is based on my essay: “Shakespeare, A Political Theorist Too,” (15 October 2019)
