  • “Time the ‘Destroyer’ in the Sonnets.” In Shakespeare and the Nature of Time, pp. 7-27. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1971. ($) http://www.bookrags.com/criticism/time-crit_9/
    “In the following essay, Turner examines the associated themes of love and time in Shakespeare’s sonnets. He argues that even though these verses depict time as corrupting all material or external things, especially beauty, they also represent true love as a transcendent, spiritual relationship to which time is irrelevant.”

Lafayette: Graduate School, University of Southwestern Louisiana, 1999. ($) http://www.bookrags.com/criticism/antony-and-cleopatra-crit8_1/
    “In the following essay, Turner examines the theme of creativity in Antony and Cleopatra. The critic devotes particular attention to the relationship between Antony and Cleopatra; their attempt to devise a new world that, in contrast to the Roman one, would be unpredictable and self-generating; and the rhetorical figures, especially of hyperbole and paradox, that underscore the motif of emerging life.”
  • “The New Classicism and Culture”, The Philadelpia Society Cleveland Regional Meeting, 2002.  Includes two poems:  ”Basic Training Graduation Day, Fort Leonard Wood, 7/11/02 (on my son’s graduation from Army Basic Training), and “First Base”.  http://www.phillysoc.org/Turner.htm

Its full stage premiere was at the theater of Christopher Newport University, directed by the renowned Macedonian director Naum Panovski.
