Geraint Jennings: Shakespeare, Language and Jerriais

Jersey Festival of Words
  • 24 September 4.30pm - 5.30pm
1 Hr
Jersey Arts Centre (Maria Ritchie Room)

Shakespeare has been an inspiration not only to writers in the English language, but also to national language and literary revivals of the 18th/19th Centuries, including the Channel Islands. The plays continue to be reinterpreted in post-colonial literatures. Looking at the recently completed Jerriais translations of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Tempest and the sonnets, Geraint Jennings will explore the background and approaches to Shakespeare in the Islands’ vernaculars.
