Paperblanks Shakespeare Sir Thomas More Lined Journal, Midi
With five distinct sets of handwriting seen in its revisions, the authorship of the 1595 play Sir Thomas More has been hotly debated. Today, it is generally accepted that William Shakespeare was the playwright involved in crafting the portion reproduced on our cover.
In todays geopolitical landscape it is especially interesting to note the contents of Shakespeares contribution, in which he mounts a passionate defence of refugees and displaced people. The first known performance of the play was in 1964 at the Nottingham Playhouse with the part of Thomas More originated by none other than Sir Ian McKellen.
Despite the persistence of some dissenters, the play has been recognised as part of the Shakespearean canon since the mid-twentieth century and was first performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2005 with the actor Nigel Cooke playing the role of More. We are thrilled to be able to present this legendary dramatic piece, in the hand of one of the greatest writers of all time, as part of our Embellished Manuscripts Collection.
