PowerPoint shown by Daniele Croci (Milan University) during the panel “Cattivo. Cattivissimo. Cattivo?” as part of Criminal Hero conference meetings (4/12/14)
The presentation is entitled “Antieroi Shakespeariani, criminali (e) politici. Francis Urquhart e House of Cards (BBC)” (“Shakespearean anti-heroes, criminals and politicians. Francis Urquhart and BBC House of Cards”) and takes into account the British tv series, in order to trace the connections between literary and historical motifs giving shape to the wicked protagonist.
