Class Details

Shakespeare’s plays portray a remarkably wide range of female characters from serving women to queens, from innocent, subservient young women to powerful authoritative adults. His plays explore female friendships, parents and children, love affairs and marriages, male actors playing female roles and female characters playing male roles. Looking closely at five plays–Twelfth Night, Much Ado Nothing, Hamlet, Macbeth, Antony and Cleopatra–we will examine the ways in which attitudes toward female stereotypes, sexuality, gender, subjectivity, social norms and performance evolve as Shakespeare’s poetic style and dramatic technique mature, and the genre shifts from comedy to tragedy.
