ENG225 - Shakesperience

The focus of the course will be the analysis of 4-5 Shakespeare plays as they are illuminated by performance in the Spring season of the Stratford Festival in Stratford, Ontario. The course will start with an intensive few days in the classroom, and involve a discussion of the theoretical questions that underlie performance and performance criticism. Together as a class, we will explore the themes of the plays, engage in careful analysis and close reading, and compare various filmic versions of important scenes within the plays.
