COURSES Fall 2022 / Literature / SHAKESPEARE
Coordinators: Roy Clary, Jim Brook
The class will read aloud and discuss Richard II. It is the first play of a series of four plays that chronicle the rise of the house of Lancaster to the British throne; the others being the two parts of Henry IV and Henry V. It marks a triad with Romeo and Juliet, a lyrical tragedy and A Midsummer NIght’s Dream, the most lyrical of all comedies. Richard is not a good king, but is a remarkable poet. The Folger Library Edition is the preferred text.
