Course Description

This course will look in detail at four Shakespearean tragedies (Julius CaesarHamletKing Lear and Antony and Cleopatra) using these to consider the variety, depth and inventiveness of Shakespeare’s ideas of ‘the tragic’, and to ask how Shakespearean tragedy might relate to ‘comedy’ and ‘history’ elsewhere in his oeuvre.  As well as close reading of the texts, we will also consider issues of staging and performance, using DVD recordings.
