Shakespeare in English

Shakespeare in English

This seminar series continues with three comedies, The Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. We know that one of the greatest influences on Shakespeare was Ovid’s Metamorphoses and all these plays deal with transformations of some kind although of a comic nature. We will be reading the plays in the original, but discussion can take place in Swedish. New participants are welcome.
