The Genius of Shakespeare

4/4/16 11:30 am - 4/4/16 12:30 pm

Renowned scholar Sir Jonathan Bate is Professor of English Literature at the University of Oxford and the author of many books including the award-winning John Clare: A Biography. It is as one of the leading Shakespearean scholars that we welcome Sir Jonathan to the Althorp Literary Festival – in the year that marks the 400th anniversary of the death of the world’s greatest playwright. Sir Jonathan’s book The Genius of Shakespeare explores questions of authorship, charting how Shakespeare’s legacy has grown over the centuries. This fascinating study shows how the legend of Shakespeare’s genius was created and sustained, and how the man from Stratford-upon-Avon became a global phenomenon.
