Vulgar Venus and Politic Poetry: Reading Shakespeare in the Renaissance

Adam G. Hooks

Established in 2006, the Beinecke Lectures in the History of the Book promote scholarship in the study of the book as material object. The Spring 2012 series accompanies the Beinecke Library exhibition, and highlights the work of two scholars whose work engages with the Yale Shakespeare collections.

Adam G. Hooks is an Assistant Professor of English at the University of Iowa, and an Associate Instructor at the UI Center for the Book, where he teaches courses in Shakespeare, early modern literature and culture, and the history of the book. His current book project, “Vendible Shakespeare,” tells the story of how the early modern book trade first made Shakespeare into a best-selling author of poetry and plays.

Part of Shakespeare at Yale, a semester of special events celebrating the Bard.
