The plays of Shakespeare are too often taught in the classroom as difficult and rather obscure sacred texts. The aim of this multidisciplinary course is to remind students that Shakespeare was not only a great poet but also a great dramatist, and to show students that his plays are still exciting and dynamic as theatre. This course is designed to give students exposure to the language, work, and insight of one of the world's greatest creative literary geniuses. A major goal of the course is to familiarize students with Shakespearean drama and foundational methods of literary criticism. Another major goal of the course is to help students appreciate, understand, and even fall in love with Shakespeare's art through application and practice as they participate in group drama. This is an active/interactive course - be ready for an adventure!
