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. Plays to be read will include: Richard II, I&II Henry IV, Henry V, Twelfth Night, Midsummer Night's Dream, As You Like It, Othello, King Lear, Hamlet, Antony and Cleopatra, Measure for Measure, Pericles, A Winter's Tale, and The Tempest. Course requirements will include lively engagement in discussion, two essays (5-7 pages each), and two examinations.
