Course Description

Shakespeare was an actor who wrote for actors. We will treat his works as dramas and not literature. This is a practical, hands-on approach to making sense of Shakespeare. Beginning with the sonnet and progressing to the soliloquy, the secrets to understanding and speaking the works of the Bard will be revealed. After one day you will know more about how to approach Shakespeare than all your days in English classes put together.
