EDITORS COMMENTS
In this evocative black-and-white photograph, taken in the 1950s, we find a professor and two graduate students deeply engrossed in the study of Shakespeare's First Folio at Durham University Library. The First Folio, published in 1623, is the earliest collected edition of Shakespeare's plays and an invaluable treasure for scholars and literature enthusiasts. The scene unfolds in a dimly lit, grandiose library setting, with tall bookshelves reaching towards the high ceiling, their spines adorned with the titles of countless volumes. The atmosphere is one of quiet concentration and intellectual pursuit. The professor, dressed in a formal suit and tie, points to a particular page in the First Folio with a sense of excitement and discovery, as the two graduate students lean in closely to listen and learn. The women students, wearing conservative dresses and cardigans, are fully engaged in the scholarly discourse, their expressions reflecting a deep appreciation for the literary masterpiece before them. The communication between the professor and his students is palpable, as they delve into the intricacies of Shakespeare's works, their voices barely audible above the gentle rustle of pages. This image encapsulates the essence of academic pursuit in the 1950s, with its emphasis on the importance of literature, learning, and the sharing of knowledge between generations. The First Folio, as a symbol of Shakespeare's enduring legacy, serves as a reminder of the timeless nature of literature and the role it plays in shaping our understanding of the world and ourselves.
