Shakespeare and Love: Stanley Wells

Synopsis
Second of a five-part series of radio essays exploring Shakespeare’s portrayal of love and how his work affects perceptions of love.
In this episode Shakespeare scholar Stanley Wells argues that there is good reason to believe that Shakespeare’s "varying portrayals of love and romance may reflect the ever-changing nature of Shakespeare’s own experiences. The shifts of tone, the variations in the choices of stories he tells and the emotional and sexual relationships he dramatises suggest that his varying portrayals of love may to some extent reflect the ebb and flow of his own emotional journey".
