THE 2014 SHAKESPEARE’S GLOBE BOOK AWARD  

Wednesday 1 October

winners announced

The biennial Award is granted to a first monograph which has made an important contribution to the understanding of Shakespeare, his theatre, or his contemporaries. 

Joint winners of this year’s Book Award are:

David B. Goldstein’s Eating and Ethics in Shakespeare’s England
and Gillian Woods’ Shakespeare’s Unreformed Fictions 

The two winning authors will share the £3,000 cash prize as well as delivering a public lecture on their work in the newly opened Sam Wanamaker Playhouse on Wednesday 1 October at 7pm

They will be presented with their award at the event by world-renowned Shakespeare scholar, Professor Stanley Wells.

"I am delighted that two scholars have been invited to speak about their books in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. Sam always wanted the Globe to be the place where scholars could share their knowledge and expertise with the general public. This Award is one way in which we are supporting and celebrating new scholars and research."Patrick Spottiswoode, Director of Globe Education and Chair of the Judging Panel
