Victorian Illustrated Shakespeare Archive launched by @CardiffUni PhD Student

August 26, 2016

Michael John Goodman

This week Michael John Goodman launched the Victorian Illustrated Shakespeare Archive. This is a valuable resource featuring over 3000 illustrations from the four major illustrated editions of Shakespeare’s Complete Works in the Victorian period. Michael Goodman, a PhD candidate at Cardiff University, has painstakingly scanned, tagged and prepared these images and made them available under a creative commons license for others to play around with. This archive is already making me think differently about Shakespeare. For example, I’ve discovered an illustration of Ariel from The Tempest dressed up in a way similar to the representations of Lady Fortune. This begs the question, might Ariel represent a figure of fortune somehow?

Check out the archive here:

Congratulations on a spectacular achievement Mikey!
