Shakespeare Festival Reads - The Jew of Malta

Tuesday, November 19, 7pm
Left Bank Books

Join Shakespeare Festival Reads for a reading group discussion of The Jew of Malta by Christopher Marlowe!

Both tragedy and farce, this masterpiece of Elizabethan theater reflects the social and political complexities of its age. Christopher Marlowe's dramatic hybrid resonates with racial tension, religious conflict, and political intrigue — all of which abounded in 16th-century England. The playwright, who infused each one of his plays with cynical humor and a dark world view, draws upon stereotypes of Muslim and Christian as well as Jewish characters to cast an ironic perspective on all religious beliefs.
