The Death of Shakespeare

To mark Europe Day, Associate Professor Lucy Potter from the Department of English & Creative Writing partnered with the EU Centre for Global Affairs to bring us the Public Lecture, ‘The Death of Shakespeare‘.

The lecture discussed the silence that followed after the news of Shakespeare’s death, and addressed questions such as “Why did the final exit of the man now acclaimed as the world’s most famous writer not attract more resounding applause? How was Shakespeare’s reputation established in the years after his death? How did his words spread, beyond Britain, through Europe, globally?”

Check out the photos and video from this lecture.
