Shakespeare in context

Discussion in 'English' started by Azael, Oct 26, 2011.

  1. Xenophobia? In reference to Catholicism (R&J) and Ethnicity & Religion & Geography (Othello).

    The generic features of tragedy, history, comedy, morality plays ...
    I've already produced loads of ppts focussing on most of Shakespeare's contexts if you are interested - you could adapt them and make them even more brilliant!

    The Elizabethean world-picture of the chain of being / god-given hierarchies (which Macbeth disrupts and Shakespeare often refers to in the play and which the witches have no part in, hence their position outside of what is right and proper...) Thank you for doing these - looking forward to seeing the ppts (BTW, we are considering Othello for GCSE next year, as it is coming off our A level Lit syllabus when Tragedy become Comedy. Quite a play to tackle at GCSE though...?)

    One of my colleagues teaches 'Othello' to top set GCSE classes. Personally I wouldn't touch it, or 'Hamlet' below A2, but each to their own.
