Learn lessons about humanity from one of the greatest poets in history: William Shakespeare

One of the world’s greatest poets, William Shakespeare is the author of plays that have been read and performed for more than 400 years. A close study of his works reveals timeless lessons about human nature, which offer a mirror for examining one’s own character. In Hamlet and The Tempest, Shakespeare considers those virtues and vices that make self-government and statesmanship possible or impossible to achieve.

The course is delivered via email, with one lesson per week for 7 weeks. Each lesson features lively teaching and discussion boards, suggested readings, weekly quizzes, and more.
