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 from 1:00-3:00 PM

The following plays will be covered:

  • Troilus & Cressida
  • Anthony & Cleopatra
  • King Lear
  • Timon of Athens
