Shakespeare is the leading playwright, and probably the leading writer, in Western civilization. His works are one of the greatest achievements of the human mind and spirit. And yet, for many of us they remain a closed book. Why? Unready Minds? Missing Notes? Too often, we were force-fed Shakespeare as adolescents?when our own dramas were all-consuming. The language of Shakespeare is 400 years old: even as adults, reading or seeing a play may seem like listening to Beethoven?s Ninth Symphony and missing half the notes. The crowds that filled the Globe to witness his plays in Elizabethan times enjoyed his words easily. Perhaps we?ve forgotten how to listen to his language, and we approach his works unaware of the larger cultural, political, and spiritual context that give them their full, rich meaning. Professor Peter Saccio is well suited to bring you back into Shakespeare?s world, and tune you into what he calls "Shakespeare?s wavelength." The Teacher and His Plan Teaching both as a lecturer and as a trained actor and director, and assisted by two Shakespearean actors, Professor Saccio brings the Bard?s sonnets and plays to life with astute and passionate performances. As you hear him effortlessly deliver Elizabethan language with the proper meter, emphasis, intonation, and emotion, you?ll experience the pleasure that comes with true mastery. Professor Saccio also prepares you to read or watch the plays by orienting you to Shakespeare?s use of multiple plots, lines of action, and the sometimes outmoded forms of human behavior?such as courtship in Elizabethan England?that arise in the plays.
