Deze webklas wordt alleen aangeboden in het Engels.

This course deals with Shakespearean drama. It uses Hamlet as its focus but most of its content can be applied to Shakespeare's plays generally. The course material introduces you to Shakespeare in his historical context and explains the ways that plays were staged in outdoor theatres in early seventeenth-century England. To highlight some of the features of the drama of the time, the course material supplies you with the information necessary to compare and contrast the acting of Shakespeare's plays in his own time and today. The examples from modern outdoor Shakespeare theatre are drawn from the Dutch Shakespeare Theater at Diever (but note that all the material is in English). The course closes with an outline of some of the cultural context of Hamlet that can help a reader understand the assumptions that Shakespeare expected his audience to have.
