Shakespeare’s Wars of the Roses

Synopsis
Podcast with Graham Holderness, Alison Findlay and Michael Hattaway. Graham Holderness begins with discussing how Shakespeare’s first tetralogy becomes the trilogy of the Wars of the Roses and how this relates to order and disorder, being in order and out of order. Alison Findlay talks of how a breakdown of sovereignty is linked to a breakdown of ceremony, relating it to Agamben, political theology and subjectivity. Michael Hattaway discusses his editions of the Henry VI plays and argues against seeing Henry VI part 1 as a prequel - while elaborating the historicity of the plays. The sessions are introduced and the Q&A session chaired by Professor Richard Wilson.
