Now Thrive the Armorers
For hundreds of years we’ve been fascinated by knights. A Folger exhibition on Arms and Armor in Shakespeare inspires a podcast on the enduring appeal of the Renaissance man of steel.
Curator Jeffrey Forgeng of the Higgins Armory Museum with Folger Director of Research Barbara Mowat show us how Shakespeare’s plays dramatize a military culture in change as the knight on horseback in Richard II gives way to the career army men of Othello.
Narrated by Folger Director Gail Kern Paster.
Now Thrive the Armorers podcast series is a project of the Folger External Relations, Garland Scott, Head.
