Shakespearean: On Life and Language in Times of Disruption

Shakespearean is a rich, brilliant and superbly drawn portrait of an extraordinary artist. Through an enthralling narrative, ranging widely in time and space, understand Shakespeare within his historical context while also exploring the secrets of literary inspiration. Examine the nature of creativity itself and consider why is it that we always return to Shakespeare, particularly in times of acute crisis and dislocation? What is the key to his hold on our imagination? And why do the collected works of an Elizabethan writer continue to speak to us as if they were written yesterday?

Take a journey into Shakespeare's work to explore how it is relevant today, no matter what stage of life you're at, the experiences you've had, or the landscape you find yourself in.
