Professor Richard Yeo (Griffith University) 

Professor Yeo will introduce a discussion of Ben Jonson'sTimber

Time and Date:
4.00pm to 5.30pm on Friday 7th September 2012

Venue:

Timber, a masterpiece of Senecan prose, is probably best known as evidence of Jonson's relationship with Shakespeare and the literary society of his day. But it also provides striking insight into Jonson's theories on poetry, his stoic ethics, and his thoughts on the role of the artist and counsellor in an age of autocracy.

All are welcome to participate in the discussion-no prior knowledge beyond a reading of the text is expected.
