“My Library Was Dukedom Large Enough” | Fryer Library, University of Queensland
2-31 May, 2016
This wide-ranging exhibition will showcase some of the Shakespeare-related treasures held at the University of Queensland’s Fryer Library. From books that Shakespeare used to construct his own plays (including a copy of Raphael Holinshed’s Historie of England, a principal source for Shakespeare’s history plays), to other important volumes from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, to materials relating to the performance and appreciation of Shakespeare in colonial and modern Queensland, this exhibition will introduce visitors to the many ways in which Shakespeare’s works have both arisen out of, and shaped, wider literary, intellectual, and theatrical legacies.
Presented by the Fryer Library, University of Queensland.
