Meet the Instructor | General Education Requirement
Love—requited and unrequited, faithful and false, heterosexual, same-sex, and challenging binaries—was a topic that obsessed Shakespeare throughout his career. Fluid, ever changing, fresh and quick, love is the stuff of imagination: who can define it? Shakespeare gives shape to the many moods and attitudes of love, which this course will explore in his 154 sonnets and in selected plays (among them Troilus and Cressida, The Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night, and The Winter's Tale).
