2512 - Shakespeare’s Warrior Heroes: A Study of Four Plays
Many of Shakespeare's protagonists (Hotspur, Othello, Macbeth, Antony, Coriolanus) are warriors proficient in dealing with a known enemy but susceptible to a less visible one. This course will start with a quick look at Talbot (Henry VI, Part 1), perhaps the most heroic figure in the canon, and then focus on Henry IV, Part 1 (an extensive investigation of Honor by means of Hotspur, Prince Hal, and Falstaff), Macbeth (where an admired hero turns murderer), and Coriolanus (one of Shakespeare's most difficult - and timely - plays). Why do these heroes fail? How do scenes from productions available on DVD affect your understanding of both the heroes and the issues at stake? Lecture (plus Questions) Facilitated Discussion Viewing Videos
