Whitney J. Oates Visiting Fellow in the Humanities Council and the Department of English

This lecture explores the dramaturgy of the foot in a series of well-known Shakespeare plays, from Richard III through As You Like It to Macbeth.  It looks at the theatrical uses of limping, pacing, stalking, tripping and says quite a bit about wandering too.
