Bevington, David: The Necessary Shakespeare, Student Edition

Description

This course will be a basic introduction to the major plays of Shakespeare.  It will include Midsummer Night 's Dream, probably Merchant of Venice, Richard II, Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, Macbeth, Measure for Measure, Antony and Cleopatra, Winter's Tale, and Tempest.  The instructor is not a specialist in Shakespeare and is not very interested in historicist approaches of any kind.  The aim of this course is to develop a full vocubulary for the appreciation of the plays, the characters, how they handle their situations, and how Shakespeare handles that handling.
