Shakespeare, Religion, and Literary Criticism, with guest Charles LaPorte, University of Washington

Charles LaPorte is Professor of English at the University of Washington and the author of two excellent books on the intersection of literature and religion: Victorian Poets and the Changing Bible, published in 2011, and, just this year, The Victorian Cult of Shakespeare: Bardology in the Nineteenth Century. We discuss ways that nineteenth-century readers engaged Shakespeare as they would sacred texts – and how that approach continues to describe literary studies even in our secular age.
