“For stony limits cannot hold love out,
And what love can do that dares love attempt.”
Lovers abound in the works of Shakespeare.  His characters struggle and play and persist, and sometimes die, in pursuit of love.  In this brand new Hands-on Tour, we’ll explore his myriad visions of love in early editions of his poems and plays from our collection.
