Much Ado About Shakespeare's Leading Ladies

Portrait of Kay Stanton

Kay Stanton, professor of English, comparative literature and linguistics

Kay Stanton, Cal State Fullerton professor of English, comparative literature and linguistics, will present a Saturday, May 6, talk titled "Shakespeare's Women." The 2 p.m. event takes place in Room 130 of the Pollak Library.

The lecture is based on Stanton's recently published book, "Shakespeare's 'Whores': Erotics, Politics and Poetics," which examines female sexuality as represented in major characters, from the goddess Venus, to the queen Cleopatra, to the cross-dressing Rosalind, and others.

Hosted by the Patrons of the Library, the event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Howard Seller at hseller@fullerton.edu.
