ALL Multi-Session Course: Shakespeare’s As You Like It

January 31 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

As You Like It is one of Shakespeare’s best-loved plays. “And in no other comedy
of Shakespeare’s,” writes Harold Goddard, “is the heroine so important as Rosalind in this one; she makes the play almost as completely as Hamlet does Hamlet.” Much of the play is set in the Forest of Arden, “but it is a forest that by some magic lets in perpetual sunshine. And not only do we have a sense of perpetual natural beauty around us; we are in the presence, too, almost continuously of the other supremely good things of life, song and laughter, simplicity and love.” Harold Bloom confesses, “If Rosalind cannot please us, then no one in Shakespeare or elsewhere in literature ever will… falling in love with Rosalind always makes me wish she existed in our sublunary realm.”

February 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The Right Guard by Alexandra Hamlet

Over one million military weapons and equipment are missing from the U.S. military inventories across the country. Though set in 1978, The Right Guard resembles the present political and economic climate of the United States, giving the reader a sense that such a scenario is very conceivable even today.
