‘To plainness honor’s bound when majesty falls to folly’: Shakespearean Power Play


Grant Horner


Presented at the CiRCE National Conference 2023.

Shakespeare is the master when it comes to exploring the relationship between power and language. We’ll look at several plays across different genres to think classically and Christianly about how the power of language and the language of power work symbiotically, and how those relations form the dense matrix of Shakespeare’s sublimely powerful language.
