Shakespeare After All: The Later Plays

Synopsis
Video lecture series in 13 parts. A free online Shakespeare course delivered by Marjorie Garber at Harvard University in 2007 focusing on Shakespeare’s later plays beginning with Measure for Measure and ending with The Tempest. Building on the discussions of individual plays in Garber’s book Shakespeare After All, the course takes note of key themes, issues, and interpretations of the plays, focusing on questions of genre, gender, politics, family relations, silence and speech, and cultural power from both above and below (royalty, nobility, and the court; clowns and fools). Designed as part lecture-presentation and part discussion, this is a course that is meant to be interactive, taking up topics generated by students as well as by the instructor.
