Mysuru, March 29:- A one-day workshop on ‘Shakespeare – Contemporary’ was held at JSS College of Arts, Commerce and Science on Mysuru-Ooty Road in the city on Wednesday.
“Shakespeare brought the characters in his plays into life. He stands on par with Kumaravyasa, Kuvempu, Ranna, Pampa and other writers. It is a privilege to speak about Shakespeare and his works,” said Prof Chandrashekharaiah of Basaveshwara Peetha of the University of Mysore (UoM).
“Shakespeare was a playwright, novelist, actor and what not. A book named Shakespeare Turned East is an amazing book on his life,” said Dr Mahadev of UoM.
Principal Prof M Mahadevappa was present. (MR/GK).
