Course Description


For hundreds of years Shakespeare has delighted readers
and audiences with his wit and wisdom. But do the writings of Shakespeare flow
out of the Christian Middle Ages or launch a downward trend away from
Christianity in the modern world?  In
Shakespeare 2 we continue our quest in pursuit of an answer.

Shakespeare 202 focuses on three more of the most popular
plays. Shakespeare’s works may be divided into three genres: comedy, tragedy,
and history. In this course students engage in an in-depth analysis of one
each: Julius Caesar, Macbeth, and Much Ado About Nothing. Students
read the play itself and an insightful commentary from a Christian perspective
by Peter Leithart, taken from his Brightest Heaven of Invention – A
Christian Guide to Six Shakespeare Plays.
