Description

This will be an introduction to close reading of Shakespeare that will address all of his genres and periods, at least after 1596.  I know very little about race, class, or gender and care even less.  I am interested primarily in unabashedly celebrating Shakespeare’s various forms of genius by tracing how complex, engaging, and intelligent the plays are about human passions.  We will read roughly a play a week, with some taking two weeks.  There will two papers, a mid-term, and a final, and attendance will be required.

NOTE: This class will meet for the first time on Monday, August 30; discussion sections will not be held on Friday the 27th.
