The family – its formation, tenderness, strains, collapse, and reformation – is perhaps Shakespeare's favorite form, social and symbolic, for the construction of meaning and evocation of feeling. We will especially observe his ceaseless exploration of the dynamics of the family in our reading of a selection of history plays, comedies, tragedies, and romances, from the whole span of his career. Other foci for discussion will include his dramaturgy, and his matchless way with words. We will study eight plays, chosen from the following list: Richard II, I Henry IV, Henry V, As You Like It, Twelfth Night, Hamlet, Othello, Lear, Coriolanus, Winter’s Tale, and Tempest.We will study eight plays, chosen from the following list: Richard II, I Henry IV, Henry V, As You Like It, Twelfth Night, Hamlet, Othello, Lear, Coriolanus, Winter’s Tale, and Tempest.

Course requirements will include lively engagement in discussion, two essays (5-7 pp. each), and two examinations.
