Shakespeare As Inspiration

Synopsis
Matthew Sweet is joined live by Professor Preti Taneja, author of a novel We That Are Young, which sets the King Lear in Delhi; Dr Iain Smith, who studies films from around the world; and by Andrew Dickson, journalist and author of Worlds Elsewhere: Journeys Around Shakespeare’s Globe. As part of Radio 3’s day of music inspired by Shakespeare, Free Thinking looks at paintings by the Pre-Raphaelites, at films from Bollywood and Japan, and at the way Shakespeare’s plays resonate in political hot spots and conflict zones across the world from South Africa to Ukraine.
