Literary Tales Ep. 9: Shakespeare on Love & War

In this half hour lecture of Literary Tales, we explore William Shakespeare’s thematic dialectical contrast of love and war, primarily through his plays Henry V and Richard III. Continuing, somewhat, from our exploration of Shakespeare’s contrast of love and politics, we return to the theme of power (politics) vs. love (self-giving, life-giving, and flesh uniting).


This lecture is based off my essay: Shakespeare on Love and War (The Imaginative Conservative, 5 February 2020).
