Shakespeare Reading Group (In-Person Only)

OSH 235 / Non Credit
Course taught in: English

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.


Plays being read: As You Like It, by William Shakespeare.


Suggested Text:  Folger Shakespeare Library's As You Like It.


Instructors:  Mr. Ron Kohn & Ms. Elizabeth Chifari
