Bevington to repeat Ryerson Lecture

David Bevington, Phyllis Fay Horton Professor in the Humanities, will deliver "Shakespeare Faces Retirement" May 18 at 5 p.m. in the Swift Lecture Hall, 1025 E. 58th St.

"David is a one-man industry," said Richard Strier, Professor in the English Language and Literature Department and Chairman of the four-person, cross-discipline committee that selected Bevington as this year’s speaker. Praising the quality and quantity of Bevington’s work, Stier said, "Every time I turn around, he has edited a new Renaissance text. Bevington has endless energy for editorial projects."

The speech was first given at the 25th Nora and Edward Ryerson Lecture. Each year, the lecture allows one distinguished faculty member who his chosen by his or her peers to speak to the larger community about his or her life and work.
