The purpose of this course is to teach students about the life and work of Shakespeare. Through this trip we will come to a better understanding of the period in which he lived, but we’ll also gain an appreciation for how alive his works are in theatres today. The students will see 4-5 plays, both by Shakespeare and by those whom he influenced; as a class we’ll discuss these plays as literature and as theatrical performances. As we travel from Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon, to the place where he made his career, London, we will be seeing the sites that he saw and gaining a better understanding of life in late sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century England. We will also be exploring the streets, museums, and churches, and other famous sites in London in order to understand both the history of England and the current culture of one of the world’s largest and most cosmopolitan cities.
