By March 31, 2010 No Comments

Valerie Wayne, of the University of Hawaii at Manoa, recently presented a lecture entitled “Cervantes & Shakespeare: Metatextualities in Don Quixote and the Late Plays” for the Early Modern Colloquium at the University of Michigan. The talk proposed that Don Quixote was “known in England shortly after its 1605 publication and that the Spanish parody of chivalric romance played a part in the King’s Men’s turn to dramatic romance in Pericles, Cymbeline, The Winter’s Tale, and The Tempest.”  Wayne is a trustee of the Shakespeare Association of America and serves on the editorial board of Shakespeare Quarterly.
