The Sunday Debate: Hip-hop vs Shakespeare

The Sunday Debate: Hip-hop vs Shakespeare

By Intelligence Squared

Intelligence Squared

Sunday, 10 July

In a debate that spans centuries created in partnership with Sotheby's, we hear from Peabody Award-winning spoken-word performer George the Poet and Booker Prize-winning author Howard Jacobson about whether modern-day genres such as hip-hop and slam poetry speak more to society today than the storytelling found in centuries-old classics. Or does the lasting appeal of Shakespeare and other great figures like him show that some works have a universal value that stands the test of time? Our host for the debate is the broadcaster and cultural historian Shahidha Bari. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
