Shakespeare in Print and Performance
DECEMBER 21, 2015–MAY 29, 2016
No writer is more central to the English literary tradition than William Shakespeare. For centuries, his works have intrigued and inspired generations of readers, audiences, and scholars.
Four hundred years after his death, the Harry Ransom Center commemorates Shakespeare's legacy by presenting a selection of rare and unique materials relating to his plays.
These materials, primarily drawn from the Ransom Center's collections, demonstrate how much we can learn about his historical context, sources, texts, and productions of the plays from early printed books and theatrical archives.
