The Auden Society met for a celebration of Shakespeare
9 May 2023
On the 26th April, the Auden society met to celebrate the bard, the swan of Avon, Shakespeare.
The group had some fascinating talks from Serenity, Miranda, Nico, and Mrs. Sharrock. The talks covered his life, several of his plays (Hamlet and Antony and Cleopatra) and the intriguing contextual topic of the plague. The talks honed in on some important areas of focus for our Sixth Form pupils and those in attendance will have benefited from some useful insights that can be incorporated into their written work.
The evening was rounded off with some comments from Mr. Hipperson on the burning question of authenticity – did Shakespeare really write his plays? A resounding yes was the conclusion!
They look forward to the next meeting.
