Jason Freddi: What makes Hamlet a tragedy?

What makes Hamlet a Tragedy?
Jason Freddi (PhD candidate, Melbourne University) on Shakespeare and tragedy
Wednesday, April 28
4-5.30pm in ib3.307 on the Waurn Ponds Campus

Jason Freddi, PhD candidate at Melbourne University, will be on the Waurn Ponds campus this Wednesday guest lecturing for the Philosophy, Freud and Reason unit. I thought I'd take advantage of Jason's presence and invite him to present at the Philosophical Society on Shakespeare, the subject of his PhD. Jason kindly accepted and will discuss Shakespeare and tragedy at this week's meeting, (tomorrow)Wednesday, April 28 from 4-5.30pm in ib3.307. In particular, Jason will address the question ‘What makes Hamlet a tragedy?’

You can access the reading that will form the backbone of Jason's presentation at http://deakinphilosophicalsociety.com/texts/nuttall/shakespearethethinker.pdf. It is an excerpt from AD Nuttall's (2007) Shakespeare the thinker. There are no page numbers on the PDF file, but the pages are in order and run from 192-205 inclusive.
