Ben Jonson famously said that Shakespeare wrote "not for an age," but for "all time." In this course we will begin to examine the several ways the Shakespeare phenomenon continues to circulate in our time. Focusing on the major plays, including of course Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth, King Lear, King Richard III, A Midsummer Night's Dream, among other famous works, we will take advantage of thinking about the plays in performance by making use of the impressive video collection on hold for us at the Asquith Video Center in the Shapiro Library. As such, this is a labor-intensive course designed to introduce undergraduates to the wide scope of approaches that can be used to make the Shakespeare vocabulary our own.
