Shakespeare's Women
Ref: C2226658
An exploration of some of the extraordinary and powerful female characters Shakespeare invented for boys and men to act: companions, lovers, mothers, daughters, viragos at war, victims of jealousy, agents of destruction and angels of redemption! We speculate about Shakespeare’s life, including political and religious factors as well as his marital and other relationships, in so far as light may be cast on the way he presents his female roles, and consider how the all-male world of the theatre companies affected their construction and presentation. We shall discuss some of the non-dramatic poetry to see if these too shed illumination, and proceed to study some roles fairly briefly, others in more depth, covering the most significant from the Comedies, Histories, Tragedies and Romances, discussing Shakespeare’s “empowerment” of his women. How much justification is there for the suggestion that Shakespeare’s women, at least, are the deadlier of the species?

Course Title: It was 50 years ago today!
Course Number: C2226659
Course Description: While most people are aware of the Beatles, even 50 years on, many will have forgotten how the phenomenon of Beatlemania came about. The object will be to flesh out the pop scene of the time with particular reference to the promotion of music through foreign tours, recordings, film and TV. We will study the impact of studio technology and press promotion and explore the reasons for the demise of the group ( as a collective). Much work will be done on the creative work of contemporary poets, painters, composers and performers.
