Courses – Fall 2022 / Literature / SHAKESPEARE
Coordinators: Roy Clary, Jim Brook
The class will read aloud and discuss the play Richard II.
Richard II 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.
