Peter Marinker: SHAKESPEARE’S UNCONDITIONAL LOVE - THE SONNETS (Remix)

Saturday 16th April  4.30 – 5.30pm

As part of The Big Lit Festival

Celebrating the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s death

Actor and broadcaster Peter Marinker discusses and reads from the 29 year old Shakespeare’s  sonnets expressing his unconditional, platonic love for his patron, the third Earl of Southampton, the beautiful 19 year-old, cross-dressing womanizer Henry Wrothesley. In a fascinating exploration based on the late Ted Hughes’ Shakespeare and the Goddess of Complete Being we glimpse the personal history of the greatest poet of the English language.
