The Riverside Shakespeare (2nd edition)

Description

This course is designed to give you a sense of the range of Shakespeare?s career. Lectures will focus on two related topics: first, how Shakespeare uses plot and character to think about literary, social, sexual, religious, political, and philosophical issues; and second, how Shakespeare justifies his life in the theater, when much of English society regarded the theater as a frivolous, debased, and vaguely criminal institution
