Shakespeare 400 Open Lecture Series: Una McIlvenna
Shakespeare 400

Hosted by the Templeman Library 

Early modern plays are filled with songs and singing, although this ubiquity of songs has been an aspect that until recently was either overlooked or seen as an obstacle to be overcome. This lecture will discuss how much we know about the songs and music in Shakespeare and his contemporaries, and what role these play in the dramas. Songs are a rich resource that can teach us a lot about daily life in the early modern period, and allow us fresh insight into many well-known plays.
