‘Dickens’s Shakespeare’ Lecture: 7 July

Hilda Hulme Memorial Lecture

‘Dickens’s Shakespeare’ by Professor Michael Slater (Birkbeck College & Institute of English Senior Research Fellow).  Chaired  by Professor Barbara Hardy.

“Professor Slater, author of an acclaimed new biography of Dickens, will seek to explore the nature of the great novelist’s lifelong passion for Shakespeare’s work, his extraordinary knowledge of it as reflected in his extensive use of it in his own writings, and his vivid sense of being, in certain important respects, Shakespeare’s successor.  Professor Slater will also be making reference to Dickens’s involvement with some of the leading contemporary interpreters of Shakespeare, notably his beloved friend William Charles Macready, ‘the eminent tragedian’.”

Wednesday 7 July: 6.00pm: The Beveridge Hall

Institute of English Studies, Senate House, London
