Society of Iqbal Studies presents with compliments from Iqbal Academy Pakistan
Workshop on Shakespeare According to Iqbal At Teachers’ Development Centre , Karachi
Resource Person:Khurram Ali Shafique
author of Iqbal: An Illustrated Biography
Winner of the Presidential Iqbal Award.
No other poet has offered a greater tribute to Shakespeare than Iqbal, who said about him in one of his finest poems, “Nature guards its secrets so jealously that it shall never again produce someone who knows so many of them.”
Which of the many layers of meanings in the playwright’s work was Iqbal referring to? Is it possible that some of the messages of Shakespeare have been imbibed by the masses of Pakistan through intermediaries and might be shaping the society as we know it? Can Shakespeare be relevant to the future of the world as it stands today?
If you do not know anything about Shakespeare, this workshop is the place to begin. If you think you know everything, then this might be a place for discovering something new. Come and find out at Teachers’ Development Centre, Karachi – on Saturday 12 December, 2009 from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
Participation is only through invitation. Please confirm your participation in advance, and also let us know if you would like to bring a friend along.
