Shakespeare: Love, Desire & Death (spring, 2007)
After a brief refresher on Shakespeare’s language, we’ll look at three great (and very different) plays. The themes of love, desire, justice and responsibility will be examined with an eye toward the young adult’s transitional years. For each play, students have the choice of writing a traditional paper (of 2000-2500 words), writing something creative (e.g., a new scene, a character’s journal, etc.) or doing a design project (e.g., a set design, a costume plot, a sound track, etc.). At least one traditional paper must be written in the semester.
