There, he participated in a workshop to examine small portions of texts in Shakespeare's plays, not for understanding of the play, but for the language itself, in isolation from the play1s meaning. The workshop was led by Professor Stephen Booth, a Shakespearean sonnet expert from University of California-Berkeley.
