Love’s Labour’s Lost
Join us for a discussion of Love’s Labour’s Lost on Monday, June 15th! We will be joined by Professors Sukey Waldenberger, Andrew Winters, and Nicole Dean. A special guest from Laark Productions will also be joining us!
At first glance, Shakespeare’s early comedy Love’s Labor’s Lost simply entertains and amuses. Four young men (one of them a king) withdraw from the world for three years, taking an oath that they will have nothing to do with women. The King of Navarre soon learns, however, that the Princess of France and her ladies are about to arrive. Although he lodges them outside of his court, all four men fall in love with the ladies, abandoning their oaths and setting out to win their hands.
