Additional Information

Everyone knows there’s “something different” about the plays Shakespeare wrote after Henry V.

In this talk Dr. Steve Sohmer (Fleming Fellow of Lincoln College, Oxford) suggests that Julius Caesar (1599) is the fulcrum on which the playwright’s career turned, and that concurrent with the writing of this Roman play he entered into a decade-long period of profound religious doubt culminating in The Tempest (1611).
