In this course, The Tempest and The Winter’s Tale will be studied in depth. These plays are powerful cocktails of colourful ingredients such as shipwreck, magic, various struggles for love and power, an exotic desert island setting / two childhood friends becoming enemies, a bear eating an actor on stage and a statue coming to life. A close reading of these plays will give us ample opportunity to discuss both the texts and their cultural, literary and historical contexts. This seminar should make you more familiar not only with Shakespeare but also with the Elizabethan world of ideas.

You should have read at least all of The Tempest by the beginning of the semester – so think, annotate, look things up if necessary and, above all, enjoy! Please use well-annotated critical editions only. Recommended editions, available as paperbacks, are: a) The Oxford Shakespeare (Oxford World’s Classics series; The Tempest: edited by S. Orgel, The Winter’s Tale also edited by D. Orgel), b) The Arden Shakespeare (The Tempest: edited by V. Vaughan & A. Vaughan, The Winter’s Tale edited by J. Pitcher).

Formal requirements: regular attendance, reading and preparing the assigned texts, active participation, Hausarbeit
