Huntington U: Shakespeare & the witty soul of Ovid
Wednesdays, March 6-April 10
10 a.m.-12 p.m.

Heidi Brayman, associate professor of English, University of California, Riverside, leads this seminar that listens for Ovid less in his sweet wit than in his tragic mode as participants read two of Shakespeare's early tragedies, Titus Andronicus and Romeo and Juliet, asking questions about translation, power, love, and myth. In one of the earliest critical assessments of Shakespeare, Francis Meres wrote in 1598 that the "sweete wittie soule of Ovid lives in mellifluous and honey-tongued Shakespeare". An epic centered on the transformative power of love, Ovid's Metamorphoses was translated into English when Shakespeare was a boy, and it became a foundational text for Shakespeare and his contemporaries, deeply influencing Marlowe, Spenser, and Milton. It is, in fact, one of the first books brought on stage and into a play during Shakespeares career.

Class is held in the Seaver Classroom 3 of the Munger Research Center. Visit any admission window for directions to the Munger Research Center for check-in at 9:45 a.m.
