Simon Ryle: ‘Bre(e/a)ch: Macbeth and the language of terror’ -podcast

Simon Ryle at KiSSListen to Simon Ryle‘s stimulating lecture on Macbeth and media theory here. He talks how terror arrives with the failing media interface, how the play innovates a ‘poetics of the letter’ that registers and disrupts the technics of terror, and how Jesuit equivocation constitutes an early modern media theory – arguing that media (in its wide sense) is our unconsciousness.

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.
