Shakespeare: The Word and the Action (16 lectures, 45 minutes/lecture) Course No. 273 Taught by Peter Saccio Dartmouth College Ph.D., Princeton University 16 Audio Cds with Course Outline Booklet
Shakespeare is the leading playwright, and probably the leading writer, in Western civilization. His works are one of the greatest achievements of the human mind and spirit. And yet, for many of us they remain a closed book. Why?
Unready Minds? Missing Notes?
Too often, we were force-fed Shakespeare as adolescents—when our own dramas were all-consuming. The language of Shakespeare is 400 years old: even as adults, reading or seeing a play may seem like listening to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and missing half the notes.
The crowds that filled the Globe to witness his plays in Elizabethan times enjoyed his words easily. Perhaps we’ve forgotten how to listen to his language, and we approach his works unaware of the larger cultural, political, and spiritual context that give them their full, rich meaning. Professor Peter Saccio is well suited to bring you back into Shakespeare’s world, and tune you into what he calls "Shakespeare’s wavelength."
