Free Speaker: Dr. Jeffrey Kahan
In February and March of 2016, LBSC will present Shakespeare's Pericles, Prince of Tyre, a rarely-produced, but wonderful adventure tale. As an introduction to the play, Dr. Jeffrey Kahan, will share the beauty, poetry, andimagination that fills the story.  Pericles: A Dark Biblical Story with Pagan EnchantmentsPericles is not a journey through history or geography; it is not a record of battles, of zero-sum gains and net losses.  Those factual narratives, valuable in their own right, can be measured as true or false against historical records.  Pericles is a story of  poetry and the imagination, one in which we journey back in time to walk with, and, in a deeper sense, as the prince, losing ourselves as he lost himself and finding, as he found, something profound in the experience.  Jeffrey Kahan is a Professor of English at the University of La Verne, where he teaches Shakespeare, Shakespeare and Film, and Shakespeare's Contemporaries, among other subjects.  He is the author of many books, including Reforging Shakespeare (Associated University Presses, 1998), The Cult of Kean (Ashgate, 2006),  Bettymania and the Birth of Celebrity Culture (Associated University Presses, 2010), and  Shakespiritualism: Shakespeare and the Occult, 1850-1950 (Macmillan, 2013). His scholarly editions include Shakespeare Imitations, Parodies and Forgeries, 1710-1820 (3 vols. Routledge, 2004), Much Ado About Nothing (Shakespeare Sourcebook, 2006), Pericles (The New Kittredge Shakespeare, 2009), and  Coriolanus (The New Kittredge Shakespeare, 2011).
