Shakespeare and Machiavelli’s Worlds

Through Thursday, March 22
The Society of the Four Arts

Machiavelli’s book “The Prince” was a page turner and a best seller in Shakespeare’s England. While everyone deplored the book, everyone thought seriously about it and even acted on its principles. But how did Machiavelli affect Shakespeare’s reading of the Renaissance world? We’ll be looking at three plays, “Othello,” “Much Ado About Nothing,” and “Timon of Athens,” to see if we can detect Shakespeare’s take on the Machiavellian mode of politics.

Dr. Susan Jones, a professor of English, specializes in Renaissance and Medieval literature and has presented papers on Shakespeare and other topics at numerous national and international conferences including the International Medieval Congress at Leeds.

Dr. Beate Rodewald, associate professor of English at Palm Beach Atlantic University, specializes in the connections between literature and the other arts, with a particular interest in literary theory and utopian literature.
