„Melvyn Bragg and guests dis­cuss one of Shakespeare’s most pop­u­lar works, writ­ten c1595 in the last years of Eliz­a­beth I. It is a com­e­dy of love and desire and their many com­pli­ca­tions as well as their sim­plic­i­ty, and a reflec­tion on society’s expec­ta­tions and lim­its. It is also a qui­et cri­tique of Eliz­a­beth and her vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty and on the pol­i­tics of the time, and an explo­ration of the pow­er of imag­i­na­tion.
With Helen Hack­ett (Pro­fes­sor of Eng­lish Lit­er­a­ture and Lev­er­hulme Research Fel­low at Uni­ver­si­ty Col­lege Lon­don), Tom Healy (Pro­fes­sor of Renais­sance Stud­ies at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Sus­sex) and Ali­son Find­lay (Pro­fes­sor of Renais­sance Dra­ma at Lan­cast­er Uni­ver­si­ty and Chair of the British Shake­speare Asso­ci­a­tion).“
