All Things Shakespeare
"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages."
Shakespeare Oxford Fellowship
The Shakespeare Oxford Fellowship is a non-profit educational foundation established in 2013. Our members come from all walks of life but share a passion for understanding how the enigmas of our own historic past are interwoven with the study of Shakespeare. The goals of the Fellowship include bringing the Shakespeare authorship debate to a world-wide audience, spearheaded by our outstanding scholarly journals, The Oxfordian and Brief Chronicles, and our lively quarterly newsletter, The Shakespeare Oxford Newsletter, not to mention our website and social media. We hope to stimulate a wide-ranging dialogue on the relevance of Shakespeare to the 21st century.
Behind every Shakespeare play there is a story. Shakespeare Uncovered reveals not just the elements in the play, but the history of the play itself. What sparked the creation of each of these works? Where did Shakespeare get his plots and what new forms of theater did he forge? What cultural, political, and religious factors influenced his writing? How have the plays been staged and interpreted from Shakespeare's time to now? What are different time has each play been so popular - or ignored? And finally, why has this body of work endured so thoroughly? What, in the end, makes Shakespeare so great?
