'So long lives this' : a celebration of Shakespeare's life and works, 1616-2016( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The year 2016 marks four hundred years since the death of William Shakespeare. To honour this milestone, the Fisher Library is mounting an exhibition commemorating the anniversary. The catalogue explores how Shakespeare's works shaped ideas of the world beyond England, how his plays imagined self and other through language, geography and mythology and how, in turn, the production of atlases, dictionaries, and histories influenced Shakespeare's world-making art. Highlights will include a selection of Shakespeare's printed plays and poems, from the First Folio of 1623 through to recent craft productions, including the sumptuous Play of Pericles (2009-2010) from British Columbia's Barbarian Press. In addition, the exhibition will feature early source material such as Holinshed's Chronicles (1587) and Plutarch's Lives (1579) along with a range of Renaissance genres and forms, from maps to Bibles to works of poetry, anatomy and heraldry. Later editions of Shakespeare and experiments with his works will also be prominently featured in the exhibition and accompanying catalogue."--
