FYSE 1167 - Shakespeare's Characters
*Shakespeare's Characters* Shakespeare’s reputation owes much to his characters; yet well-known as they are, they remain mysterious. What did they mean in Shakespeare’s time? How do they still succeed as characters? What explains idiotic Bottom’s charisma? What does Henry V’s flirtation with Princess Katherine or Othello’s jealousy about Desdemona reveal about Elizabethan—and our own—understandings of gender and race? Such questions will help us develop skills in speaking, writing, and critical inquiry. Texts will include at most three plays from among the following: /A Midsummer Night’s Dream/, /Much Ado About Nothing/, /Merchant of Venice/, /Henry V/, /Measure for Measure/, /Hamlet/, /Othello/, /Lear/, as well as contextual readings. We will also study a film of one of the plays. 3 hrs. sem.
