The goal of this class is to have students understand and enjoy Shakespeare.
Many students who learn Shakespeare in the classroom receive only a glimpse into the greatest English prose and poetry ever written. Our goal is to give students an opportunity to engage with Shakespeares work by studying, reciting, and performing it.
Richard II is a 13-week course. The next session begins on March 21, 2012. We will also offer the course as an accelerated one-week course during spring break.
