Unravelling Shakespeare's Life

Hilda Hulme Memorial Lecture: 23 April 2012: 6.00pm: The Chancellor's Hall, Senate House, University of London

James Shapiro (Columbia University): 'Unravelling Shakespeare's Life'. Cradle-to-grave biographies of Shakespeare in the twenty-first century have steadily drifted toward fiction and toward reading the life out of the works. James Shapiro unravels the writing of Shakespeare’s life over the past two centuries in an effort to understand when and why these trends have occurred, what price we pay for this biographical tradition, and what alternative approaches might offer. Free and open to the public, and followed by a wine reception. If you would like to attend please contact Jon Millington, Institute of English Studies:
