Poet and critic Professor Madeline Doran from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, spoke on "Shakespeare's Art."   Doran’s approach to Shakespeare, as expressed in her most important work, Endeavors of Art (1954), was the “attempt to reconstruct some part of the context of ideas, assumptions, and predispositions about literary art in which Shakespeare and his fellow English dramatists…must have worked, and to suggest ways in which these things may have helped shape their art.”
