Litbits and Hamlet

Hamlet? Hamlet! Why on earth not. In which James ‘Ophelia’ Kidd and Adam ‘Second Servant’ Smyth are joined by Professor Emma Smith of Oxford University. THEN—wait for it—dressed in black cloaks—they rush to the very core of the very centre of the very heart of the quintessence of the canon, and talk English literature’s biggest cheese. And we don’t mean Jeffrey Archer! Seriously, we don’t.

Why does the drum come hither? Listen on and find out, posters.

Emma Smith is Professor of Shakespeare Studies at Oxford University. She works on early modern drama and her most recent book is Shakespeare’s First Folio: Four Centuries of an Iconic Book (2015).
