Shakespeare: Villains, Fools and Fairy Tales

Villains abound in Shakespeare, as does magic. This course combines two earlier ones to explore high-profile villains like Macbeth and Iago as well as female villains and evil brothers before moving onto fools and clowns and their function in Shakespeare’s day. We’ll also see how villains and clowns drive magical fantasies such as Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Tempest, Pericles, and the Winter’s Tale.
