AS You Like it webinar

C.S. Lewis says that reading old literature is a lot like visiting a foreign country and that there are two ways to experience it. You can travel as a tourist taking in the sights, or you “can eat the local food and drink the local wines, you can share the foreign life, you can begin to see the foreign country as it looks, not to the tourist, but to its inhabitants. You can come home modified, thinking and feeling as you did not think and feel before.”

In order to help you experience Shakespeare’s comedy As You Like It in that second way, Kelly Cumbee will introduce you to the metaphors and imagery that formed the landscape of the Elizabethan imagination. She will also help you recognize the structure, contents, and stock characters that an Elizabethan audience would have expected of a Comedy, and will touch on the Pastoral Romance which inspired this play.

About the Speaker:

Kelly Cumbee has loved music, nature, and stories as long as she can remember and believes that they are all connected. She has homeschooled her seven children for over twenty-five years, mostly by sitting in her rocking chair and reading aloud to them what she herself wanted to learn. A life-long student, she has spent the last two years in Angelina’s Medieval and Renaissance Literature and Early Modern Literature classes where she has had the pleasure of absorbing Angelina’s method of opening up literature through metaphor and form.

Both his fiction and nonfiction writings have begotten many imitators, and their language and characters have entered the common vocabulary of the English-speaking world. Join Thomas Banks on May 21st for a close look at the man's life, his principal stories and essays, and his influence on the way we think, hope and fear.
