Timon of Athens 101

Best-Dressed Special Guest Patrick Aaron Harris joins us again this week to talk about Shakespeare's most misanthropic and cynical (and underrated) play, Timon of Athens! The Rhetorical Device of the Week is acyrologia (aka malaprops); Patrick's Burbage Break is all about early modern customs of hospitality and charity; we talk about the likelihood of a Middletonian intervention in this text, and discuss whether or not Timon needs to get naked before running off to his cave; we've got gossip for *days*; and we reveal the latest results of our #DickBracket. For a play that not too many people like, we sure do have a lot to say (mostly thanks to Patrick).
