Howe Library has started a new Shakespeare reading group, First Sunday Shakespeare. It’s a way to get together with others (virtually), engage with some great works of art, and have lots of fun.
Inspired by this new program I thought we’d highlight the Hogarth Shakespeare Series, a series of modern Shakespeare retellings by popular, contemporary authors, commissioned by Hogarth Press.
The Gap of Time by Jeanette Winterson – a retelling of The Winter’s Tale
Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler – a retelling of The Taming of the Shrew
Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood – a re-imagining of The Tempest
Macbeth by Jo Nesbø – a retelling of Macbeth
Dunbar by Edward St Aubyn – a retelling of King Lear
New Boy by Tracy Chevalier – a re-imagining of Othello
