Dr. Campo to lead discussion of Romeo and Juliet on February 9th

Romeo and Juliet (1884), Thomas Francis DickseeWritten by Harold Henkel, Associate Librarian

My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep: The more I give to thee

The more I have, for both are infinite.

Just in time for Saint Valentine’s Day this year, treat yourself to a re-read of the most powerful depiction of romantic love in Western literature. In February, Dr. Carlos Campo will lead a discussion of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet at the University Library. Dr. Campo holds a Ph.D. in English with a drama emphasis and taught English and theatre for many years at the College of Southern Nevada, Dove College, and the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. Approaching Romeo and Juliet as both literature and drama, Dr. Campo is an exceptionally qualified guide to Shakespeare’s most popular play.

Like the Bible, Shakespeare ought to be read and reread over a lifetime, both for wisdom and for the peculiar joy that comes from the experience of a difficult pleasure. If you have wanted to become re-acquainted with the bard for some time, take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy Dr. Campo’s expertise (and humor) as he leads our conversation of Shakespeare’s most accessible masterpiece.

The discussion of Romeo and Juliet will take place in the Library on Tuesday, February 9th at 12:00. For more information on this and other Library literature events, contact Harold Henkel at 352-4198 or harohen@regent.edu.
