Shakespeare’s Seven Ages set in his contemporary gardens [more details]
Lecturer: Caroline Holmes
Location: DESY Auditorium
As a rural boy Shakespeare knew by name and use English country flowers which he put to good effect in his Elizabethan plays. Shakespeare’s plots are often exactly that - gardens and flowers designed to give his audience hidden messages. Using readings from his works illustrated with contemporary botanical prints and plants we will discover a second floral language in his words.
