Pericles 101

This week we learn that Pericles is the most bonkers play in the canon, with not one but two shipwrecks and six - SIX! - different worlds in which it takes place. Confused yet? In Pericles 101, the Rhetorical Device of the Week is hendiadys; the Burbage Break is all about the shipwreck trope in early modern plays; Aubrey plays a round of "Aubrey Fails at Shakespeare;" and in our Tips & Tidbits we discuss exactly how complicated and fun this play can be. In our ShakesBubble Gossip, Jess gives us the "short version" of her current projects and we follow up on a relevant MLitt thesis project.
