After Hamlet's Ghost, this was amazing too. You'll learn about the background of the play, the position of the Jews in Venice, the ghetto, and the intercultural context, the connections and fights of Christians and Jews, and many more. You'll go into the depth of the play, and you'll even hear F. Murray Abraham speak, so if that's not a glowing recommendation... :) Professor Greenblatt is amazing. These two courses motivated me to pursue Shakespeare, even though I come from a totally different area. I can't wait to read his books and articles, since his knowledge and teaching style is so inspiring. I hope to see a sequel soon. Thank you, Harvard!

If I were to use a few words to describe this course I would say it is simply "Extraordinary , engaging, surprising, memorable!". I would say that it delivers on the learning expectations set in the beginning, but it also brings so much more: rich discussions, new points of view, fresh opinions and deep contextual analysis.
