Continuing the 2011-2012 William J. and Yvonne Hyde English Department Colloquium Series, Adam Putz, IAS in English, will present his research on the influence of Shakespeare in Dublin during the Celtic Revival on W. B. Yeats, the figurehead of this movement, and James Joyce, an early critic of its nationalist excesses. In his objection to Yeats’s Shakespeare, Joyce offers an answer to the crisis of authenticity undermining the concerted effort undertaken by cultural figures during the Revival "to speak on behalf of the Irish" after the fall of Ireland’s "uncrowned king," Charles Stewart Parnell. The presentation runs from 2:30-3:30 p.m. on Friday, November 11, in 113 Wimberly Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
