Shakespeare's Soul

Shakespeare's Soul is the third part of the work of The AfterShakespeare Collaboration, and here we turn the focus away from his literary output, instead choosing to explore the contribution he made to our understanding of what it is to be a Human Being, and how this too can be turned into a 'living legacy'.

 

In the 15 years we have spent trying to understand, and then perpetuate, how Shakespeare did what he did as Playwright and a Poet, we have gained tremendous insights into how he also furthered 

humanity's knowledge of itself. Having said that, we have only recently begun to realise that this knowledge also needs special focus and attention, and so we are very much at the start of the work.

 

Over the next few months we hope to put together our thoughts and produce a discussion document, which will then be made available on this website.
