The year 2016 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare. In commemoration of this significant event, the Utah State University Merrill-Cazier Library has mounted an exhibition entitled "Unruly Women: Women in Shakespeare’s World." The Library will also have on display its original 1632 partial "Second Folio," along with other 17th-19th century printed works. Unruly Women explores both the roles women played and the perceptions of women during Shakespeare's time. The USU Library's partial "Second Folio," includes four of Shakespeare’s tragedies: Titus Andronicus, Troilus and Cressida, Romeo and Juliet and Coriolanus. It is bound in modern leather with marbled paper and is housed in Special Collections and Archives.
