Thinking Aloud
Dreaming the Renaissance
Today we'll be talking about dreams, nightmares, premonitions, and visions ... from a Renaissance perspective. Carole Levin is a scholar intimately acquainted with Tudor England: the era of Shakespeare and Queen Elizabeth. We'll be walking through the partition between day and night, between the real and the fantastical, the mundane and the ethereal. Come along with us, if only just to know what a society in former times made of their dreams.—Original airdate: 10/22/2009
