This in-depth class takes a close look at three of Shakespeare’s plays over the course of the year. (The Merchant of Venice, Romeo and Juliet, Much Ado About Nothing) We’ll explore his influence on the language and culture of his day as well as how and why his plays and poems continue to be a vital and influential part of modern writing and art. We’ll also look at meter, character, and plot and how he uses them to tell a rich and enduring story. Whether you’re passionate about Shakespeare or have never read anything he wrote and want to learn more, this is the class for you.
