Shakespeare in Quarto, Shakespeare in Love


Shakespeare in Quarto, Shakespeare in Love

Wednesdays, Oct. 5-Nov. 9
9:30–11:30 a.m.



What would we know of Shakespeare’s work without the “First Folio?” Shakespearean scholar Heidi Brayman leads a six-week seminar focusing on the plays and poems first published in small quarto editions, which were cheaper but often less accurate. Students will discuss A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Othello and Henry V, along with the Bard’s Sonnets.
