Shakespeare: Metamorphosis was an exhibition at Senate House Library that ran between April and September 2016. Although the physical exhibition is no longer open, our online legacy platform still allows you to view the exhibition galleries, view event recordings and check our extensive collection of Shakespeare resources and blog posts.

The Library runs exhibitions and events throughout the year. See our Exhibitions and Events pages for details.
