This being the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, Oxford too is hosting a festival, organised by a consortium of local institutions like the university, Bodleian Libraries, the OUP, Blackwell’s and a number of local arts organisations and festivals. Weston Library, one of my favourite spaces in Oxford, has an exhibition called Shakespeare’s Dead and the Bodleian will host a series of events, starting with an activity day on Shakespeare’s birthday on this Saturday, and continuing till end of July. OUP’s theme is Illuminating Shakespeare, while Blackwell is presenting a chosen Shakespeare Book of the Month.
