Professor Tobias Döring reflects on the relationship between Birmingham, Shakespeare and Germany

Birmingham’s Shakespeare Library has always held more materials in German than in any language other than English.  There are now thousands of German holdings, including some utterly unique treasures.  In this film, Professor Tobias Döring of Ludwig Maximilian University, Munich, presents perhaps the most extraordinary and iconic German book in Birmingham’s Shakespeare Library, and reflects on the important relationships between Birmingham, Shakespeare and Germany.
