Good News – Shakespeare Video Lectures & Plays

This class consists of video lectures from the Great Course Company on Shakespeare's plays and video versions of the plays from the BBC. The class meets each Wednesday at 10:30 AM from June 1 through August 17, 2016, in the Parish Hall.

The following plays will be covered:

  • Henry V
  • Macbeth
  • Hamlet
  • The Merchant of Venice
  • Measure for Measure
  • The Comedy of Errors

You can learn a set of interpretive tools, drawn from the texts themselves, that give direct insight into Shakespeare's plays. You can then follow the narratives of the plays as they unfold, with a clear understanding of how the plays function and fit together.

Lecturer: Professor Marc C. Conner, Ph.D.
Dr. Conner is the Jo M. and James M. Ballengee Professor of English at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, VA.
