Book List

Shakespeare, William: Norton Shakespeare


We will read ten or eleven plays from the later half of Shakespeare's career (which covers the late "problem" comedies, the major tragedies, and the tragicomedies). Taking our cue from the plays' self-consciousness of their medium of theater, we'll consider how the actions and utterances of performing bodies can define and reshape the boundaries between what's present, what's represented, and what is made real. I've ordered the Norton Shakespeare at the bookstore, but you may use any recent edition of the plays.
