A Visit from Australia

Shakespeare's works still attract visitors from all over the world

Katie Neville

“Shakespeare is the love of my life,” says Mariam from Australia, who first became aware of the genius of Shakespeare as a child in Iraq. She grew up and became a teacher in Australia, and now shares her love of literature with her students in Perth. It was a real pleasure to talk to her and have the privilege of showing her round the house where Shakespeare himself would first of become aware of the power of language.
