think.kera.org 3


To be or not to be? That might be a better question for science than Shakespeare. Kathryn Harkup joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the many ways The Bard killed off his characters, their feasibility in real life and how audiences of the day would’ve reacted to the dramatic demises. Her book is “Death By Shakespeare: Snakebites, Stabbings and Broken Hearts.”
