Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

English lecturer Bart van Es explores the full range of Shakespeare’s comic writing. What is a Shakespeare comedy? How representative are their themes of mistaken identity, happy marriage and cross dressing of his work as a whole? van Es is a fellow in English at St Catherine’s College, Oxford. He is author of Spenser’s Forms of History and Shakespeare in Company.
