‘The two hours’ traffic of our stage’: Time for Shakespeare
Professor Tiffany Stern
Wednesday 21 May
When the Prologue to Romeo and Juliet announces that the performance will last two hours, what does Shakespeare mean? Tiffany Stern will ask how time was understood in an age of sandglasses, sundials and inaccurate clockwork. Tiffany Stern is Professor of Early Modern Drama at the University of Oxford.
