Who Wrote Shakespeare's First Folio? | July 29, 2016 [YouTube, 57 minutes]
Presenter: Jim Hale
Description: Jim Hale discusses the two men who put together the First Folio of Shakespeare's plays in 1623 as a tribute to the memory of their late friend and colleague who had died seven years earlier. They are John Heminges and Henry Condell, and they left us a wonderful preface that tells us a lot about their plans in publishing the First Folio. Jim also talked about the physical production of the book and how, in odd ways, this has sometimes played into our critical understanding of the plays as literary works.
