poor shadows of elysium

All this happened, more or less. The war parts, anyway, are pretty much true.

Shakespeare’s Montaigne

Co-presented by BAM, The Shakespeare Society, and New York Review Books
Lecture and commentary by Stephen Greenblatt
Performances by Blair Brown, Michael Cerveris, Denis O’Hare, and Michael Stuhlbarg

Pulitzer Prize winner, bestselling writer, and Harvard professor Stephen Greenblatt collaborates with Blair Brown, Michael Cerveris, Denis O’Hare, and Michael Stuhlbarg for an engaging look at the deep resonances and relationship between Shakespeare’s work and John Florio’s famous translation of Montaigne’s Essays. As Greenblatt states in his introduction: “Two of the world’s greatest writers of the Renaissance—two of the greatest writers the world has ever known—were at work almost at the same time, reflecting on the human condition and inventing the stylistic means to register their subtlest perceptions in language.” To what extent did Montaigne influence Shakespeare? This is the question that the performance and commentary will seek to elucidate.

I was always told there was no surviving video (other than short clips) of this production, but the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust has a complete video of it. The quality isn’t great, so it will probably never be released, but you can watch the entire thing at their archive. After watching it, it’s easy to see why this production was so influential.

One of the so-called Pavier quartos, actually printed in 1619, but backdated. From the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust archive.
