Class Details

Shakespeare is uncannily acute about the ethical and representational issues posed by the appearance of the alien in the midst of a familiar world. The Moor, the Jew, the madman, the ghost: the stranger emerges from elsewhere, but also from within, and always poses fundamental questions about the nature and grounds of self and community. We’ll use the figure of the other as a route into some of Shakespeare most compelling works, including Midsummer Night’s Dream, Merchant of Venice, Othello, Macbeth, Hamlet, Coriolanus, and The Tempest.
