Festival talks by Emma Smith

37. THIS IS SHAKESPEARE

Generously supported by
THE STEPHENSON JAMES TRUST

Shakespeare, a genius and prophet whose timeless works encapsulate the human condition like no others. A writer whose vision, originality and literary mastery were second to none. Professor Emma Smith will debunk these common perceptions of the Bard and will instead introduce an intellectually, theatrically and ethically exciting writer who treated topics such as individual agency, privacy, politics and celebrity in surprisingly modern ways.
