Shakespeare: The Glory of Drama

by

Tim McIntosh

$3.00

Presented at the A Contemplation of Glory Conference 2021.

William Shakespeare is the most spirited and exciting writer in the English language. So why do so many students find him to be insufferably boring? Because well-meaning teachers often suffocate his work, teaching his plays as if they were novels. This class will present a simple method of teaching the plays as embodied, dramatic performances (which is what they are!). The class will be fun. Volunteers should wear comfortable shoes.
