Just so you know what's on the agenda... On Wednesday we'll look at some key terminology, do some close analysis of Scene One and then we'll watch some of the film (the Russian one). We will look at other performances later on in the term.
In the meantime, here are some links that you might find useful. Luminarium is a good website for information about various writers; this includes an excellent general resource as well as having a range of criticism for your delectation. Here is a link to a site that has comprehensive materials on the play.
I hope this helps, particularly as we move to consider the play in its historical context.
Don't forget to read and understand the play to the end of Act I.
Hope you're all well!
