Sunday the 12th at 2 we will begin our Shakespeare fun, beginning with Romeo & Juliet. The MOOC? edX Shakespeare: On the Page and in Performance, from Wellesley College. It's already started, but as we are still on our first play there is plenty of time to catch up.
The online course is taught by a senior lecturer in Theater Studies and a Professor of English. We merrily bounce back and forth between text and rehearsals.
Coming up? A Midsummer Night's Dream, Much Ado About Nothing, Othello, King Lear, and The Winter's Tale. The library has purchased extra paperback copies of all the plays which you can find on the red classics cart. We have annotated editions and collections on the regular shelves in 822.33.
As for Romeo & Juliet, we have several editions, adaptations, children's versions, even a graphic novel. You can listen to a full cast version of the play on your pad or phone via our Audiobookcloud subscription.Posted by library at October 9, 2014 09:43 AM
