Star Lecture archive – Jerome De Groot

In November 2017, Dr Jerome De Groot delivered a lecture on Shakespeare and his cultural legacy to Year 12 and 13 students.

During this lecture, Dr De Groot looked at how we approach the study of Shakespeare and, in particular, the different ways of thinking about his work.

In discussing why we read Shakespeare at all, he used extracts of Hamlet and the numerous interpretations of this play to demonstrate how Shakespeare’s works explore the gamut of human emotions throughout the ages.
