MIC Bachelor of Arts 30th Anniversary Public Talk Series: Shakespeare: Man or Myth?

In 2023 we celebrate 400 years of William Shakespeare’s first folio, the collection of all of his 35 plays published in November 1623, seven years after his death. But are we certain he was actually the author of those plays? Indeed, do we know much about him at all? For example, did you know that he was married to two different women on consecutive days in 1582? Or that he left none of his writing except for 6 scrawled signatures all of which are different? Or that when he died he did so in silence, with no reference anywhere to his passing? In this talk, Professor William Leahy will explore what we know and do not know about Shakespeare and whether we can say for certain whether he was a writer at all.

The Faculty of Arts at MIC celebrates 30 years of its landmark BA Liberal Arts this year. In celebration a series of public lectures will take place from January to March showcasing some of the excellent academics who form part of the Faculty and the various subjects which fascinate them.
