We will explore some of the ways Shakespeare’s writing is so different from that of his contemporaries (or anyone else for that matter) and how he still manages to have such universal appeal more than 400 years after his death. We will start by finding out how this remarkable man manages to infiltrate our minds to get us thinking as he wants us to. Each session will begin with a short talk followed by reading plays that illustrate the points made in the talk. Advice on text to be used will be given to those who enroll.
