We are happy to have Simon Ryle (University of Split) as the third speaker in the KiSS Shakespeare and the Uncanny series. His talk is entitled ‘Bre(e/a)ch: Macbeth and the language of terror’. We will convene at 6.30 in the Gallery at the Rose Theatre, Kingston. Check the event page, too. As always, free and open everyone!
Simon Ryle teaches literature and film at the University of Split, Croatia. His monograph, Shakespeare, Cinema and Desire: Adaptation and Other Futures of Shakespeare’s Language, was published in 2014 by Palgrave Macmillan.
Here is a brief account of his book: “Shakespeare, Cinema and Desire explores the desires and the futures of Shakespeare’s language and cinematographic adaptations of Shakespeare. Tracing ways that film offers us a rich new understanding of Shakespeare, it highlights issues such as media technology, mourning, loss, the voice, narrative territories and flows, sexuality and gender.”
