Shakespeare’s France and Italy

Synopsis
Podcast from the Folger Shakespeare Library. What did Shakespeare — and his audiences—really know about distant places and people? In this episode Rebecca Sheir poses that question about France and Italy— the two foreign lands that Shakespeare wrote about the most. Her guests are Deanne Williams, author of The French Fetish from Chaucer to Shakespeare (2004) and associate professor of English at York University in Toronto, and Graham Holderness, author of Shakespeare and Venice (2013) and professor of English at the University of Hertfordshire.
