The Ocala Civic Theatre recently presented a play- I Hate Hamlet. It was a comedy. Maybe you feel the same way about Shakespeare in general or remember the days when, in order to understand what was going on, you had to use Lamb’s Simple Version or Cliff Notes. The fact is that although the world honors and encourages us to read Shakespeare, his plays are difficult, demanding, and even strange. This course seeks to make Shakespeare understandable to the general reader. It starts with a simple premise: Shakespeare actually teaches us how to understand his plays. He gives us clues and tools at every step of the way that can help us unlock the mysteries of his art. Come with me to explore this new approach presented by an excellent Great Course instructor, whose aim is to help you read and understand Shakespeare. We will gather the tools for understanding comedy, tragedy, and the history plays. I will supplement the classes with my experiences at Stratford-on-Avon and my own research into the bard.
