This course will offer a close, analytical reading of the play, one act at a time -- an approach that will encourage us to attend to often overlooked nuances of character and language, and enrich our understanding of the work as a whole. Those who come to the class generally familiar with the play will find the analysis stimulating. Those whose views about the play are fully formed and seemingly intractable may be surprised.
