FIF 617 S'Blood, I'm Speaking Shakespeare!?!

Course Description

Shakespeare’s plays should be fun. Shakespeare was an actor who wrote for actors. His plays were meant to be seen and heard, not read. Our day-long session will embrace techniques that unlock the mysteries of how to actually make sense of Shakespeare. We will explore a number of the more well known passages from such plays as Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, MacBeth and Othello. Both the soliloquy and the scene will be examined. At the end of the day, you will know how to actually speak Shakespeare’s words, and will also know what they mean. (S’Blood = God’s Blood). You will have opportunity to spend the day learning in the brand new F.R. Matthews Theatre.
