FIF 226 Unlocking Shakespeare

Course Description

After one session you will know more about how to approach Shakespeare than all your days in English classes put together. Shakespeare was an actor who wrote for actors. His plays were meant to be seen and heard, not read. We explore the sonnet, the soliloquy and the scene. By the end, you will have a metaphorical toolkit that will provide a practical approach to breaking down Shakespeare’s works, making them fun to tackle and easy to understand.
