How does a reprobate become king? William Shakespeare’s “Henriad” traces the rise of Prince Hal from wastrel to “the mirror of all Christian kings.” This six-week class series will work with two plays (Henry IV, Part 2 and Henry V) as Shakespeare creates a complex, seamless historical epic that entertains as it educates. No prior experience with Shakespeare is necessary; Dr. Robert J. Burkhardt will do a quick review of the two earlier plays, Richard II and Henry IV, Part 1. Whether you are new to The Bard or a seasoned Shakespearean, this class is for you. Students will read, discuss, and analyze texts, as well as, examine and discuss the historical, social, and political times in which Shakespeare wrote. Please note, texts are not included in the course fee.
