Denzel Washington, Imtiaz Dharker, Emilia Bassano and Shakespeare's dark lady
Denzel Washington talks about The Equalizer 2, and Germaine Greer and Will Tosh discuss the identity of the dark lady of Shakespeare's sonnets.
The identity of the 'dark lady' of the Shakespeare's sonnets has mystified academics for years. As the Globe stage a new play about Emilia Bassano, one of the main candidates, Shakespearean academics Germaine Greer and Will Tosh consider how likely it is that Emilia is the dark lady and what we know about the real Emilia Bassano- a writer herself.
Denzel Washington discusses starring in his first ever sequel, The Equalizer 2. He returns as the mysterious and elusive Robert McCall, who delivers vigilante style justice for those people who can't do so for themselves, using any means necessary.
As part of our Inspire season, poet Imtiaz Dharker explains why walking through the city streets in the early hours gives her inspiration.
