misc_none Much Ado About Shakespeare Collaboratory Exhibit Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Sarah Brown     
   

 Curtis Library is proud to host, “And there’s the humor of it,” a new traveling exhibit from the National Library of Medicine, which will be on display in the Collaboratory January 18 - February 25.

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) created characters that are among the richest and most humanly recognizable in all of literature. Yet Shakespeare understood human personality in the terms available to his age—that of the now-discarded theory of the four bodily humors –blood, bile, melancholy, and phlegm. These four humors were understood to define peoples’ physical and mental health, and determined their personality, as well.

“And there’s the humor of it”: Shakespeare and the four humors explores the role played by the four humors in several of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays through beautiful imagery and rare books from both the National Library of Medicine and the Folger Shakespeare Library, and examines more modern interpretations of the four humors in contemporary medicine.  This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of  Medicine, National Institutes of Health and the Folger Shakespeare Library.

Also in the Collaboratory, explore Shakespeare’s world and Elizabethan England. Play a trivia game and explore the language of the time through word play, perform a play with puppets and paper dolls, plus many more fun Shakespeare-themed activities!
