Actress and Cambridge scholar Abigail Rokison wins Shakespeare’s Globe Book Award
Shakespearean Verse Speaking uses evidence from theatrical handbooks, performance practice and drama training to provide a synthesis of academic and theatrical approaches to Shakespearean text, providing a fresh perspective on the part of Renaissance actors.
Abigail is well known for her role as Primrose Larkin in TV's The Darling Buds of May amongst many others. After extensive study and academic roles, she now holds the position of Director of Studies in English and Drama at Homerton College, Cambridge.
Patrick Spottiswoode, Director at Globe Education, said: "The Globe could not have been rebuilt without the painstaking research undertaken by Shakespeare scholars in the 1980s and 1990s. Since its opening in 1997, the Globe has become a place where leading international Shakespeare scholars have been able to share their scholarship with the general public.
"The Shakespeare's Globe Book Award seeks to recognise and promote new scholarship. At a time when research impact is being measured and debated, the award is a timely celebration of the work of a new generation of scholars, encouraging them to share their pure research with a wider public"
Abigail will deliver three lectures about her work supported by Globe actors at three prestigious venues: Shakespeare's Globe on October 10, the 2012 Times Cheltenham Literature Festival on October 11, and at the Shakespeare Institute later in the year.
