SHAKESPEARE READING GROUP

OSH 235 / Non Credit
Course taught in: English
Locations:

Course description: The class will read one or two Shakespeare plays aloud in their entirety per session. Parts will be assigned and switched frequently, so everyone gets a chance to read major characters. (Remember, "There are no small parts, only small actors!") Background information on the play will be offered, and participants will have ample opportunity to provide analysis based on their own understanding and experience. No acting or sword fighting experience is necessary, just an interest in great drama, poetry, sonnets, and iambic pentameter! During past sessions, students have developed impressive confidence in tackling the Bard's difficult language. This session we will be reading The Taming of the Shrew (suggested text is The Signet Classics Shakespeare Series). If time allows, we may watch a DVD of the play, perhaps the Richard Burton / Elizabeth Taylor film or a performance from the Globe Theatre in London.
