Shakespeare After All: The Later Plays by Marjorie Garber

Shakespeare After All: The Later Plays

ENGL E-129 - Harvard Course

by Marjorie Garber


Title Details


This course focuses on Shakespeare’s later plays beginning with Measure for Measure and ending with The Tempest.

Building on the discussions of individual plays in Marjorie Garber’s book Shakespeare After All, this course takes note of key themes, issues, and interpretations of the plays, focusing on questions of genre, gender, politics, family relations, silence and speech, and cultural power from both above and below (royalty, nobility, and the court; clowns and fools).

Designed as part lecture-presentation and part discussion, this is a course that is meant to be interactive, taking up topics generated by students as well as by the instructor. We discuss a play each week, along with the relevant critical reading.
