He was a towering leader during World War II, who gave hope to wartime Britain in its most difficult years. His event-filled life stretched from the mid-Victorian era to the 1960s. Many of his speeches are still quoted today. As Churchill's Shakespeare reveals, Winston Churchill was a lifelong admirer of Shakespeare, whose works shaped his writing and ideas. For the first time, this exhibition brings together compelling photographs, documents, rarities, and more from the Churchill Archives Centre at Cambridge, the Folger, and Churchill’s home Chartwell. Churchill's Shakespeare uses Shakespearean associations to shine a new light on an extraordinary modern figure.
