Bevington ed, David: The Necessary Shakespeare

Description

I am mostly interested in having the class appreciate how capacious, complex, humane, and Intelligent Shakespeare's plays can be.  So I will concentrate on the plays themselves rather than on any talk about context or political assessment.  The focus will be on how the plays construct character and conflict so that all the situations and relations get almost unbearably intensified.  Pain is part of the pleasure, in how I ask you read closely and re-read and in how you come to understand the significance of the actions.  The skills developed should carry over into other literature classes.  Any edition of the plays will suffice but I will order Bevington, ed, The Necessary Shakespeare.  There will be two papers and probably a midterm, and there will be graduate student-led discussion sections.
