From the “weird” meteors of Macbeth to the rain that “raineth every day” in Twelfth Night, this presentation chases the weather of early modern England. By exploring the climate in Shakespeare’s plays, as well as the climate in which his works were composed, this talk by Associate Professor of English at West Virginia University Lowell Duckert invites us to critically re-examine the entangled relationships between climate and culture in our current era of climate change. Most appropriate for adults. $5 for WVBG members, $15 for non-members. Register here.
