‘Representing the Ghost of Shakespear’: summoning the spirits for Balliol’s spring exhibition
As we can’t help but be aware, Shakespeare died on 23 April 1616 – 400 years ago. But does the Bard haunt Balliol? A behind-the-scenes talking tour of Balliol’s spring exhibition will elucidate. The speaker will leave plenty of time at the end for a last chance to look at the exhibition: ‘I suppose they thought I was dead’: Shakespeare at Balliol in five acts.
Naomi Tiley is the College Librarian at Balliol.
