SHAKESPEARE'S SOUTHWARK REFORMATION
Friday 10 November
7pm-8.30pm  at Southwark Cathedral,  London Bridge; free;
book at http://se1.info/2h7KHUS
Professor Emma Smith revisits the fascinating question of
Shakespeare's own religious allegiances in the doctrinal
ferment of post-Reformation England. Southwark Cathedral has
many connections with the bard, Shakespeare's brother Edmund
who is buried in the Cathedral and his collaborator John
Fletcher connect him to the Cathedral. Professor Smith will
also draw in another literary son, the medieval poet John
Gower whose tomb is in the Cathedral's north aisle. The
figure of Gower in one of Shakespeare's most popular plays
during his own lifetime, Pericles, helps us to look anew at
the role of memory, nostalgia, and Marian symbolism in
Shakespeare's dramatic imagination. Emma Smith is Professor
of Shakespeare Studies at Hertford College, Oxford and the
author of Shakespeare's First Folio: Four Centuries of an
Iconic Book.
