ONLINE CLASS: Shakespeare’s Language Demystified (21117)

Tuesday, October 19, from 6 to 8 p.m. ET

$50.00 Per Person (10% off for members)

This class, with actor, director, and educator Kate Eastwood Norris, will give students an understanding that Shakespeare’s language contains much more than just words we might need to look up in a classical dictionary. It is also full of embedded structures that easily reveal not only definitions but delivery. Through discussion and occasional on your feet exploration of excepts from his plays, the way Shakespeare utilized rhetoric, meter and other poetic elements to create his gorgeous and enduring art is revealed. By exploring the manifestation and nature of these linguistic structures, students begin to recognize them within the text and what may have initially appeared as a long and complicated speech becomes an intriguing portrait of action, emotion, and meaning. One Tuesday: October 19, from 6 to 8 p.m. ET
