Abstract

Idaho Scholar Talks: “The Economy of Nature: Human and Non-Human Forces in Shakespeare’s King Lear and Timon of Athens“ by Dr. Peter Remien (Lewis-Clark State College) at the Yanke Research Family Park. Remien explores Shakespeare’s engagement with the clash between the natural world and the man-made world. Discussing two of Shakespeare’s tragedies, Timon of Athens and King Lear, Dr. Remien examines the interplay between human and non-human forces suggesting that complicated human structures – and the people who construct them – are, sometimes, too smart for their own good.
