Select Studies: Shakespeare$179

Political Corruption. Injustice. Prejudice and Discrimination. Women's Roles. The Meaning of Life and the Difficulty in Locating Truth. Shakespeare's themes still resonate strongly today, even though he wrote his plays more than 400 years ago. Seen by many as the greatest writer in the English language and creator of hundreds of words and phrases we use every day, Shakespeare deserves a course dedicated to him. This new course will provide an introduction to the world of Shakespeare and focus on his plays Hamlet and The Merchant of Venice, with a glimpse at The Tempest and some of his sonnets.
