For more than 400 years, Shakespeare’s works have been performed, read, recited, taught and loved around the world, and reinterpreted for each new generation, as films, plays, musicals or literary transformations. The Hogarth Shakespeare project is where the world’s favourite playwright meets today’s best-loved novelists – reimagining The Bard’s works for a contemporary readership. Here’s an introduction to the first five books in this ground-breaking series.
