Some Perspectives on Shakespeare's King Lear
This intensive, three-week class will study the play which critic Harold Bloom called “the height of literary experience.” We will discuss the play in the first week. In the second week we will view and discuss three Lears (on DVD) and The Dresser, a 1983 film. The final week will be a screening and discussion of RAN, a 1985 film by Akira Kurosawa. Ms. Scott was a lecturer in classics and great books at UM and taught English literature at Community High School.
