Georgianna Ziegler, curator

 

Kick off William Shakespeare's 450th birthday year with this wide-ranging, often unexpected display drawn from our unequalled Shakespeare holdings.

 

From Russian and Czech translations to a musical score by Felix Mendelssohn, from centuries-old printed editions to Salvador Dali set designs, Shakespeare's the Thing offers a wealth of responses to Shakespeare's genius. Join us in exploring four frequent ways of encountering the Bard: fixating on Shakespeare, printing his works, performing his plays, and depicting the man and his characters, from Falstaff to Cleopatra.
