The evolution of one of William Shakespeare’s most enduring works will be in the limelight at the Marshall Public Library.
Tuesday, April 19 at 6:30 p.m. the library will host Idaho State University Ph.D. candidate in English Jake Claflin for an in-depth look at Macbeth and three of its more recent iterations in popular culture. Claflin will lead a discussion of the 2015 big-screen adaptation of the famous play starring Michael Fassbender, the 1971 Roman Polanski directed film, and Akira Kurosawa’s version titled “Throne of Blood.”
“For over four centuries, Shakespeare has been a continual presence in entertainment and art,” Claflin said. “His work is constantly getting reworked, repurposed, and adapted to reflect the current time the story is being told.”
“Shakespeare fans and connoisseurs of pop culture from movies, to television, to comics will appreciate Mr. Claflin’s insight into why Shakespeare has continued to remain popular and relevant,” said Amy Campbell, Reference Librarian at the Marshall Public Library.
This free discussion is part of the Marshall Public Library’s Literary Series and is open to all members of the public.
