We swim in modern and post-modern waters and they affect our thoughts and our tastes. Shakespeare’s Hamlet sat on the cusp of the modern world and seemed to anticipate with shocking insight what was coming. What do we need him to teach us? In this workshop, Kern explores the power of Hamlet to awaken us to fuller, more satisfying, more profound manners of thinking about and perceiving reality.
