Video of the Week: Iconic Authors on their favourite lines from Shakespeare's Plays

Share |

The Hogarth Shakespeare project, which brings together some of the most well-loved English language novelists in the world, launched in October with Jeanette Winterson's retelling of The Winter's Tale, The Gap of Time. Each author has been invited to re-write a favourite Shakespeare play in whatever manner he or she wishes, and fans of both the novelists and the Bard have been excited about the project since it was first announced.

This video features several of the participating authors discussing their favourite lines and plays and will reignite the passion of any Shakespeare lover. Click to listen to the likes of Howard Jacobson, Jo Nesbo, Gillian Flynn and Margaret Atwood, whose responses come in the form of original illustrations.
