Tom Rutter, Ben Jonson and the Cavendishes

15 February, 2018 @ 1:05 pm - 1:50 pm

For the first EMF this semester, our very own Tom Rutter (English) will present on Jonson’s professional and personal relationship with William Cavendish, Earl of Newcastle, including his commissioned poems and entertainments, plays written under Cavendish’s influence, and Jonson’s stay at Welbeck during his 1618 walk to Scotland. Listeners can expect centaurs, cheese-mites, an incontinent midwife, and Robin Hood to boot. All welcome!

This session is organised by the EMDG.
