It's been 400 years since the world's most famous and well-respected playwright died and to mark the anniversary there’s an abundance of celebrations and commemorations of Shakespeare and his work.
To honour this huge event, we've collated a fantastic range of free resources on the Bard and his plays, sonnets and more. In addition to this, The Open University is involved in three different co-productions with the BBC on his life, work and legacy.
- 400 years of Shakespeare hub
- BBC Learning English - Shakespeare Speaks
- Fakespeare: Rewriting the bard
- The legacy of Shakespeare
- Shakespeare: A critical analysis
