Intelligent, insightful and accessible, Shakespearean is an enthralling exploration of Shakespeare himself and how and why he remains so central to our lives today. Our guide is the acclaimed author and journalist, Robert McCrum.
McCrum is eternally fascinated by Shakespeare and in Shakespearean he sets out to explore the playwright's endless relevance in our lives. As he does so he paints a vivid and rich portrait of Shakespeare the man, his role in performance arts and the development of language as well as his enduring presence in politics, culture, identity, power, race and sexuality.
Is Shakespeare’s work really as prescient as it seems? And can it help us in these turbulent times?
