Read more about Shakespeare’s life and death at Houghton Library’s Blog. Houghton Library’s exhibit “Shakespeare: His Collected Works,” will be featured until the end of the month. The exhibit displays many rare artifacts from the Harvard Collections, such as Harry E. Widener’s rare copy of Shakespeare’s First Folio. More details about the exhibit can be found in this week’s Harvard Crimson article.
