Scenes, scenes, scenes

This year marks the occasion of the fourth centenary of William Shakespeare’s death. The event will be celebrated throughout the Anglophone world. As a tribute to Shakespeare’s lasting presence in the contemporary theatre of Flanders and the Netherlands, Jozef De Vos, Jürgen Pieters and Laurens De Vos have written Shakespeare, auteur voor alle seizoenen, to be published with Lannoo in the course of the Bard’s birthday month (book presentation on April 19, more details to follow soon).
On www.shakescenes.ugent.be Jürgen Pieters will publish a series of analyses (in Dutch) of famous scenes taken from Shakespeare’s plays. Every month, on or around the 23d, a new instalment of the series will become available online. The February-instalment, on Hamlet, can be read here.
