Paper Presentation--Sept 11 NH 407

This Thursday (9/11) at 4:15pm in the English Department Conference
Room, Patrick Beisell, an English Undergraduate student at PSU, will
be presenting parts of his paper "The Man in the Moon: Lunar Influence
in 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'" for discussion and comment. The paper
explores the much maligned and neglecting figure of the Moon in
"Midsummer Night's Dream;" the paper argues that Shakespeare's play
is, in many ways, organized and cohered by the influence, presence,
and disfiguring of the Moon.

This paper will be part of the University of Virginia's annual
Medieval/Renaissance Conference. Patrick would love to receive any
critical feedback before he presents the paper in full next week.
