Approaching Shakespeare by Emma Smith

Approaching Shakespeare

by Emma Smith

Title Details

Audio Original
In this ongoing course presented by Oxford, Professor Emma Smith takes on one Shakespeare play at a time, asking a specific question on each that will hopefully shed fresh light on his work as a whole. For instance, what is the significance of Othello’s race? Did Macbeth’s bloody rise come about as a result of supernatural intervention or was he simply insane? Is the Tempest meant to be Shakespeare’s final self portrait at the end of his career? And why are the lovers so interchangeable in Midsummer Night’s Dream? By framing the discussion this way with her students, Smith hones in on what makes Shakespeare so enduring and still vital to modern audiences.
