Professor Barry Ife asks how silent reading differs from live performance, and how might those differences shape the way a dramatist like Shakespeare went about his work.

Professor Barry Ife was Principal of the Guildhall School from September 2004 to January 2017, and is now an Honorary Senior Research Fellow at the School. He has written widely on the cultural history of Spain and its European context, and is currently working on oral and written literature in early-modern Spain and England.
