Course Description

Topic: Revenging and Forgiving in the Later Plays of Shakespeare

Would you forgive the person who humiliated you in front of the person you love? What about the person who tricked you into believing that your beloved was unfaithful? Or the one who made you so cer­tain of that infidelity that you killed the person you loved?

Shakespeare returned to these questions again and again, in tragedies like Othel­lo and King Lear, but also in comedies and romances from Twelfth Night to The Winter’s Tale to Cymbeline. We’ll look for answers there, but also in the Lilly Library, modern dance, and a contemporary novel.
