=====================================================

Exhibiting a healthy context for the first publisher’s blurb to a Shakespeare play

“Honey-tongued” Shakespeare may have been known for his “sugred sonnets”, but this exhibition places Shakespeare’s “savoured salt of wit” and the readers’ “wits’ healths” – discussed in the unique 1609  preface to Troilus and Cressida – in the context of some culinary, medical, literary and religious texts published between 1590 and 1690.
