About the Event

Oxford Professor Emma Smith’s electrifying new book presents a different side to the Shakespeare we all know and love. This is Shakespeare writes in strikingly modern ways about privacy, politics, celebrity and sex. Come and spend lunchtime getting to know this Shakespeare for all – one not to be missed!

‘I admire the freshness and attack of her writing, the passion and curiosity that light up the page. The book does something very important – it makes you impatient to see or re-read the plays at once’ HILARY MANTEL
