Previous coursework in acting and/or Shakespeare strongly recommended.
In this course we will continue to build on the basic foundation of text analysis for actors through in-depth scene study of Shakespeare’s Roman tragedies. Students will work on a variety of scenes in addition to speeches and soliloquies. We will also consider the works in their historical and political context. The course will culminate in a workshop presentation of scenes and speeches from the plays. This course is intended for students with a prior background in acting and Shakespeare; it assumes a basic knowledge of Shakespearean text analysis from an actor’s point of view (an understanding of how rhythm, scansion, punctuation, operative words, etc. inform the possibilities of meaning). Readings include Julius Caesar, Coriolanus, Antony and Cleopatra,Titus Andronicus .
