Donne, Death, and the Doctors: the Elements of Wit - A talk with Dr. Tony Abbott
Professor emeritus at Davidson College, Dr. Abbott offers a preview of the Pulitzer prize-winning drama Wit. The main character is an English professor whose only human contact seems to be through a compassionate nurse, a former teacher and the audience demonstrating that we often live our lives inside walled prisons of our own construction and then come to the end realizing that we have never lived at all. Dr. Abbott’s talk will explore the important role of poet John Donne’s work in the play.
