Shakespeare and the Modern World

editor | | Friday, January 1st, 2010

    The aim of this course is to have participants come to see Shakespeare’s plays as relevant to us today. It poses a question — how believable do we find the central characters in Macbeth, Hamlet and King Lear and to what degree are the issues raised in these plays relevant to us in the 21st century? The emphasis is on discussion and suggested "trigger questions" are provided. However course leaders should feel free to adapt the course as needed. Suggestions as to how this might be done and plot summaries for use as handouts are included.
