Shakespeare’s Genius as a Writer

  • Santa Fe Woman's Club 1616 Old Pecos Trail Santa Fe, NM, 87505 United States (map)

If you think you love Shakespeare’s writing, just wait until Dr. Benedetti shows you just how amazing it us, just how skilled Shakespeare was as a writer. Bob will show us how Shakespeare takes advantage of the iambic pentameter rhythm and uses poetic techniques like no one has before or since.

Dr. Benedetti gives us a glimpse into Shakespeare’s mind at work—and it’s astounding.

Join us for an enlightening evening!

For Orpheus’ lute was strung with poets’ sinews,
Whose golden touch could soften steel and stones,
Make tigers tame, and huge leviathans
Forsake unsounded deeps to dance on sands.
— Proteus in Two Gentlemen of Verona
