History of Shakespeare Diploma Course

History of Shakespeare Diploma Course

William Shakespeare – poet, playwright and actor. His work has given us a deep and lasting sense of the value of human life and love. Through his insight into his characters’ feelings and emotions, we have gained a world of insight into ourselves – our light and also our darkness.

The History of Shakespeare Diploma Course aims to give you an idea of who Shakespeare was, the world that he was born into and helped to shape, and the reason his plays in particular – though his poetry too – are considered to be the work of a genius.

Shakespeare was born during the perfect period in which to make use of his skills – the Renaissance. We’ll look at how the movement greatly influenced the creative development of theatre and poetry in England, and how Elizabethan theatre developed through patronage and the creation of theatre venues.

We’ll look into William Shakespeare’s personal life – his upbringing, schooling and marriage –  and his professional life, working in London and what it was about his writing that made him stand out from the crowd.

We’ll examine the genres of plays in which Shakespeare wrote, covering his histories, tragedies, comedies, and romances, along with his sonnets. We’ll then look into some of the myths that surround Shakespeare, including the belief that he didn’t write any of his plays!

The course concludes with an exploration into the power of Shakespearean language, characterisation, universal themes and influence on modern culture.
