Wait, I did *what* yesterday?

Oh yeah, I signed up for FutureLearn's course on Shakespeare’s Hamlet: text, performance, and culture. I'll let you know how it goes. Join in!

This course introduces the many ways in which Hamlet can be enjoyed and understood. Six weekly videos discuss the play’s fortunes in print, and its own representations of writing and theatre; its place in the Elizabethan theatrical repertory; its representation of melancholia and interiority; its fortunes on the modern stage; its appeal to actors; and its philosophy.
