The UCD/Abbey Theatre Shakespeare Lectures aims to sustain an ongoing conversation about Shakespeare in Ireland – in performance, in books, in history.
Remembering and forgetting Shakespeare in 1916.
This talk addresses what it means to remember Shakespeare in 2016, and reflects on the forgetting that is also required: forgetting not only aspects of Shakespeare’s life, work and legacy, but also that of certain of his contemporaries, notably those who died in the same year (Cervantes, Beaumont) or whose significant publication (the Jonson folio) has been overshadowed in subsequent centuries by Shakespeare’s cultural dominance.
