Description

In 1623, 36 of William Shakespeare's plays were published in a single, large volume, or folio. This work, now known as the First Folio, has come to signify Shakespeare's unparalleled impact on English language, literature, and culture. However, the book itself gives little insight into how and why it was produced. Through an exploration of the industry and market that created the First Folio, as well as its natural successors, the Second, Third, and Fourth Folios, this exhibit places the work in context and enriches understanding of Shakespeare as both author and symbol.
