We will explore the world of Shakespeare – the language, the history, the intrigue! As we study the writings of this mastermind, his vivid imagery, intricate thought, and meaningful themes will serve as an inspiration to help us develop our own thinking and writing. We will act out scenes, memorize soliloquies, and bring the thespian out in all of us! After all, “the play’s the thing!” Come prepared to engage in lively discussions and conversations centered around the analysis of universal themes, thoughts, and truths. This course provides the opportunity for free and open exchange of ideas sparked by the common attention given to the world according to Shakespeare!
