Welcome to Getting to Know Shakespeare
The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust is proud to present 'Getting to Know Shakespeare', an on-line course which aims to give you a taste of different approaches to Shakespeare. We're making it freely available because we're passionate about sharing our knowledge and enthusiasm for Shakespeare as widely as possible. We're grateful to The Arden Shakespeare for sponsoring the course.
It's presented mainly through video and audio posts and includes special guest speakers from the world of the theatre and Shakespeare scholarship. The course features special locations in and around Stratford-upon-Avon and London, and shines a light on special books and documents cared for in The Shakespeare Centre's Library and Archive. 'Getting to Know Shakespeare' is intended for people who would just like to know more. Perhaps you've just visited one of the Shakespeare houses in Stratford-upon-Avon, or seen your first Shakespeare play. Perhaps you're a student at school or college, a teacher wanting to present some different ideas and opinions to your class, or perhaps you just want to starting getting to know about the greatest of all writers. Well, here's where you might start.
