Get ready to explore the newly discovered folio leaves from Shakespeare's iconic First and Second Folios at Fisher Library, with Professor Liam Semler and Associate Professor Huw Griffiths.
During the lockdowns of 2020, Rare and Special Collections Librarians discovered some loose folio leaves in the collection that appeared to be pages from a Shakespeare folio. Working with Professor Liam Semler and Associate Professor Huw Griffiths from English, they were quickly identified as coming from broken-up copies of Shakespeare’s first (1623) and second (1632) folios. While they are still undertaking work on these pages, Liam and Huw will take you through some of what they have discovered about these fascinating fragments.
Please note – this lecture is being videoed and the video will be available on the Library’s YouTube channel.
