Active Minds: William Shakespeare

Lectures and Presentations
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Born in 1564, William Shakespeare is regarded by many as the greatest writer in the English language. Although he is most famous for his plays, he rose to fame in his life as a poet, writing 154 sonnets and two long narrative poems. Most of his plays were not published until after his death in 1616, leading some to question his authorship. We will seek to understand Shakespeare’s life and connect his story to his plays and poems.
