“...the shadow of a wife...”: Who was Mrs. Shakespeare? …delves into the life of the Shakespeares from the perspective of day-to-day life for families in the late 1500s into early 1600s England.
Joanne Zipay will explore what little is known about Anne Hathaway, the woman who was married to history’s greatest dramatist. What kind of a relationship existed in their 34 years of marriage, as she was at their home raising the three children in Stratford-Upon-Avon while he worked in the London theatre? Their wedding was quickly arranged. She was 25 and he was 18. Did William Shakespeare love his wife? Did he include her in his writing? And finally, a modern-day concept will be bridged: “How has modern feminist scholarship given us new perspectives on ‘traditional’ ideas about Anne Hathaway Shakespeare?”
Be sure to attend this discussion as a preface to the play performance of “Shakespeare’s Will” on Friday, December 9th at 7pm.
