Shakespeare in French
Date: 08/06/2016 – 10:00 – 18:00
Institute: Institute of Modern Languages Research
Type: Conference / Symposium
Venue: Dr Seng T Lee Centre for Manuscript and Book Studies
With Shakespeare’s works being regarded (and thrust down people’s throats) as ‘universal classics’, it is perhaps not surprising that they have so often been staged across the Channel. The Bard is, in fact, the writer whose works are most frequently performed in France. Join us then in Senate House Library to explore Shakespeare from a French perspective. Along with talks from Florence March and Nathalie Vienne-Guerrin (Université Paul Valéry), there will be a screening of Les Enfants du paradis and a bilingual reading of (extracts from) Henry VI.
