Shakespeare Unbard, Episode 32: Pericles is a mess - but which of its writers do we blame?

Most likely written with a collaborator, Pericles: Prince of Tyre is a dramatic hodegepodge, a mash-up of myth and fairy tales that has the distinction of being one of the few complete dramatic failures in the canon. In this episode, Joel examines the dramatic question of whether Pericles can - or should - ever be staged.

In this episode you'll hear excerpts and clips from:

  • Pericles, Prince of Tyre. Arkangel. 2006

  • Shakespeare, William. Pericles: Prince of Tyre. The Riverside Shakespeare, Houghton and Mifflin, 1974.
