Christina Hendricks’ lecture on this text for the Repetition Compulsion theme, January 2015.
Robert Crawford gives what he calls a somewhat unconventional reading of The Tempest, arguing that we can see it as a directly political play in the sense that it may function as a criticism of King James I.
The Penelopiad rewrites Homer’s The Odyssey, in part from the perspective of Odysseus’ wife, Penelope. In this lecture, Jill Fellows discusses how Atwood’s Penelope responds to and questions Homer’s interpretation of her life, while the twelve hanged maids respond to and question Penelope’s own version of events.
Christina Hendricks gives the historical political context in which Plato wrote this text, talks about the Socratic elenchus and how it is exemplified in Book I, and discusses the parallel structure of the kallipolis and the soul.
