Show Notes

Charles LaPorte is Professor of English at the University of Washington and the author of two excellent books on the intersection of literature and religion: Victorian Poets and the Changing Bible, published in 2011, and, just this year, The Victorian Cult of Shakespeare: Bardology in the Nineteenth Century. We discuss ways that nineteenth-century readers engaged Shakespeare as they would sacred texts – and how that approach continues to describe literary studies even in our secular age.
