Shakespeare's Plays

Shakespeare's Plays
Shakespeare's Plays Before the publication of the First Folio in 1623, nineteen of the thirty-seven plays in Shakespeare's canon had appeared in quarto format. With the exception of Othello (1622), all of the quartos were published prior to the date of Shakespeare's retirement from the theatre in about 1611. It is unlikely that Shakespeare was involved directly with the printing of any of his plays, although it should be noted that two of his poems, Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece were almost certainly printed under his direct supervision. Here you will find the complete text of Shakespeare's plays, based primarily on the First Folio, and a variety of helpful resources, including extensive explanatory notes, character analysis, source information, and articles and book excerpts on a wide range of topics unique to each drama. Tragedies Coriolanus (1607-1608) The last of Shakespeare's great political tragedies, chronicling the life of the mighty warrior Caius Marcius Coriolanus.

Preface For over a decade I have taught an introductory, undergraduate class, "Einstein for Everyone," at the University of Pittsburgh to anyone interested enough to walk through door. With each new offering of the course, I had the chance to find out what content worked and which of my ever so clever pedagogical inventions were failures. At the same time, my lecture notes have evolved. This text owes a lot to many. i i i

Shakespeare entstammte einer begüterten Bürgerfamilie und besuchte wahrscheinlich die Stratforder Lateinschule. 18jährig heiratete er die 8 Jahre ältere Anne Hathaway, mit der er drei Kinder hatte. Um 1586 ging er möglicherweise mit einer der vielen reisenden Schauspielertruppen nach London. Als der erfolgreichste Bühnenautor seiner Zeit und Teilhaber am Globe Theatre kam er rasch zu Wohlstand. Obwohl er fast ausschließlich für das Theater des Volkes schrieb, war er auch am Hof geschätzt, wo mehrere seiner Stücke zu festlichen Anlässen aufgeführt wurden und seine Truppe zeitweilig als "King's Men" königliche Protektion genoß.
