In celebration of the 450th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s birth in 1564, the Friends of the Cranford Public Library are pleased to sponsor this lecture by Dr. Christopher Gibbs. Dr. Gibbs will be looking at eight of Shakespeare's plays dealing with the War of the Roses and how they led him to a meditation on monarchy reminiscent of Machiavelli's "The Prince" and other works of the late Renaissance. He will point out examples of where Shakespeare fudged the facts for dramatic purposes, and he will read specific passages from the plays for illustration. Dr. Gibbs holds a doctorate in American History. He is the author of six novels and two historical monographs. He has taught history at the University of Northern Colorado, Colorado College, the University of Missouri, Rutgers University, and at Union County College. The Friends are also presenting film versions of Shakespeare plays and films inspired by Shakespeare plays as part of their Tuesday evening classic film series.
