Professor Sir Brian Vickers (Honorary Research Professor of UCL English) will speak on "The One King Lear"
The Keith Walker Memorial Lecture is a biennial event to commemorate a much loved member of staff of UCL English Department who was a renowned editor of Rochester, Dryden, and Marvell. This year we look forward to an exciting and thought-provoking lecture by the distinguished scholar Sir Brian Vickers. Since the 1980s it has been generally accepted that Shakespeare revised King Lear in around 1610, and that the Quarto and Folio editions represent two substantially different plays, often printed separately in modern editions. Professor Vickers will present evidence to refute this view.
