Anthony DiMatteo, Ph.D. - Upcoming CAS Scholarship Series

“A Black Matter For the King”: From Virgil’s Baldric to Shakespeare’s Gage,"  will be presented by Dr. DiMatteo at the sixteenth biennial New College Conference on Medieval and Renaissance Studies on March 8–10, 2012, in Sarasota, Florida.  The lecture explores how Shakespeare's epic portrait of England's warrior-saint Henry V owes much to Virgil's divided view of heroism.  DiMatteo's previous talk, " 'Jerks of Invention’: Shakespeare and Serious Play in Renaissance Literature,”  was also featured at the fifteenth biennial Medieval and Renaissance Conference,  New College of Florida, in March 2010.  That talk demonstrated that the bird's eye view Shakespeare often takes of human invention and politics blurs the distinction between the serious and the playful.
