Shakespeare 2017 Wall Calendar
The plays of William Shakespeare (English, 1564-1616) have inspired artists for hundreds of years. The compelling characters and complex plots of his comedies, tragedies, and histories are as relevant to his descendants as they were to the audiences of the Globe Theatre and the royal courts of Elizabeth I and James I.
Many details of Shakespeare's life seem as though they were plucked out of one of his plays, from conspiracy theories about the real authorship of Shakespeare's works to plagues, wars, and the death of a child. The Globe Theatre, where many of Shakespeare's best-known plays were performed, has its own dramatic history, including a fire that burned the theater to the ground in 1613 during a performance of Henry VIII.
Each month of this calendar presents trivia about Shakespeare's life and times coupled with twelve opulent images that capture the drama of the Bard's storytelling.
