Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

To coincide with Shakespeare's 450th birthday this year, we will explore various literary manifestations of what might be called the Shakespeare-myth, a term which can be taken to refer both to Shakespeare's life and his work. We will start out with a close reading of one of the Bard's most influential plays, Romeo and Juliet, and study a selection of 20th century adaptations in various genres in order to explore the drama's impact on our culture. In addition, we will look at how contemporary writers have imaginatively re-created Shakespeare's life - about which we know enigmatically little - in plays and novels. A detailed reading list will be posted on the elearning platform at the beginning of the term.
