East India Company, Malabar gold, and Shakespeare

On Monday, 4 Sep 2017, 17:30 – 19:00, the British Library will be hosting a talk that traces the journey of Shakespeare’s play Pericles, Prince of Tyre to South India’s Malabar Coast. With the help of several British Library collection items, the talk will explore the connections between the East India Company’s import of Shakespear’s work and the export of spice from today’s Kerala state. Admission is free.
