Paradise Lost

Posted By Artemis Preeshl, Wednesday, January 17, 2018

Mother Nature shifts the affairs of characters in Shakespeare’s plays. Through the lens of plays such as King Lear, The Tempest, The Comedy of Errors, Macbeth, and Twelfth Night among others, “Paradise Lost” reveals how storms altered individual lives and affected plots. By examining the responses of Shakespeare’s characters to the storms in his plays, the aftermath draws attention to the human response towards fellow citizens, be it through love, violence, revenge, and/or forgiveness. This session focuses attention on the different responses of Shakespeare’s characters to disasters, the responsibility of those in power to keep their citizens safe, and the reconstruction and reconciliation that can increase awareness of social justice in the wake of the storms.
