How to Cook your Wife; The Sea Voyage and The Starving Time of Jamestown

Location Willard Conference Room, DePerno Hall
Presenter Jason Denman, Professor of English; Alison Brown '17
Description This seminar will explore the 1622 play The Sea Voyage by John Fletcher, and its striking verbal parallels to first hand accounts of the Virginia colony of Jamestown, particularly the harsh winter of 1609-1610, when more than two thirds of the settlement died of malnutrition. They will discuss the historical events leading up to this catastrophic year in colonial history and how these events are echoed throughout Fletcher's play. This seminar has it all, from shipwrecked pirates to Pocahantas, so please join us!
