Shakespeare in the Land of Lincoln Symposium


Shakespeare in the Land of Lincoln includes four lectures by leading Lincoln scholars, a new play for young audiences and exhibits on both Lincoln and Shakespeare. Reservations are recommended.

A professor of English for most of his career, Michael Anderegg, Ph.D., has written several books including Cinematic Shakespeare and Orson Welles, Shakespeare, and Popular Culture. In Lincoln and Shakespeare, Anderegg describes how Lincoln discovered the Bard’s works at a time when they were first being widely distributed and read in the U.S. The words and stories resonated with the future president. Anderegg states, “It was to Shakespeare’s dramatic universe that Lincoln turned to again and again for intellectual nourishment, emotional support and sheer pleasure he could find nowhere else.
