ENGLISH 115G: Shakespeare: Five Tragedies

Readings of five plays: Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, Macbeth, and Antony and Cleopatra. We will begin with a brief overview of Shakespeare's life and times and the theatrical conditions he worked within. However, our efforts will be focused primarily on direct engagement with Shakespeare's plays themselves. Sessions will include discussions of Shakespearean tragic language, reading aloud of specific scenes, and exploration of what unites and differentiates these plays. Finally, we will reflect continuously on what makes tragedy such a strange, rich and necessary form, where (as one philosopher wrote) ¿in suffering failure, the loser conquers.¿
