Grieving During A Pandemic; Shakespeare And The Plague

Download Audio

Every day, people are dying from COVID-19. They are our family members, our friends, our neighbors and community members. For most, there will be no traditional funerals, memorials or burials. So how do we begin to grieve and make sense of this new reality? Also, professor and author James Shapiro tells us how Shakespeare's life and works were shaped by waves of plague contagion, and how he kept working through it all. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's April 6, 2020, full broadcast.
