David SchalkwykOn Thursday Oct 26, Kingston Shakespeare is happy to host David Schalkwyk (Queen Mary), who is giving a talk entitled ‘Unpacking the heart: Interiority, Theatricality and Love in Hamlet‘. The paper approaches the problem of interiority in Hamlet by asking why it is impossible to say “I love you” in Claudius’s Denmark. We convene in Gallery of the Rose Theatre, Kingston starting at 6pm. The talk is free and open to everyone!

His books include Speech and Performance in Shakespeare’s Sonnets and Plays (Cambridge, 2002), Literature and the Touch of the Real (Delaware, 2004), Shakespeare, Love and Service (Cambridge, 2008), Hamlet’s Dreams: The Robben Island Shakespeare (Arden Shakespeare, 2013), The Word Against the World: The Bakhtin Circle (Skene, 2016).
