Murray Abraham on gaining an audienceâs sympathy for Shylock, Sir Ben Kingsley on communicating Shakespeareâs ideas through performance, Germaine Greer on the playwrightâs home life, Dame Harriet Walter on the complexity of his heroines, Brian Cox on social conflict in his time and ours, Jane Smiley on transposing King Lear to Iowa in A Thousand Acres, and Sir Antony Sher on feeling at home in Shakespeareâs language.
