Lost and found Shakespeare

November 22, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

In the past 20 years, scholars have discovered that Shakespeare wrote rather more than previously thought. Several of Shakespeare’s contributions to others’ plays were lost because his name did not appear on their title-pages and have only been recently rediscovered by the application of what is called computational stylistics. This talk will explain just how it is that scholars of literature and theatre are now able to detect Shakespeare’s writing within larger works that were either published anonymously (as most plays were at the start of his career) or were published under someone else’s name.

After sketching how we are now able to find this lost writing, the talk will consider the most interesting recent examples of rediscovered Shakespearian writing and will discuss just how this new material fits within the wider Shakespeare canon and what it tells us about his professional career and his relationships with his fellow writers and actors.
