Linda Kay Hoff, Shakespearean scholar and author, speaks July 14th at 10:30 a.m. at the Ethical Humanist Society of Chicago, 7574 N. Lincoln Avenue in Skokie. She will speak on “Shakespeare’s Hamlet—An Allegory for the Reformation.” As a secular critic, Hoff will sort out ”the highly conspicuous religious elements” of the play, challenging but not ignoring the conflicting possessive claims of Catholics and Protestants that this literary classic validates their outlook. Calling it “a very baffling play,” she will attempt to solve “the riddle of Hamlet.”
