Shakespeare's “Tempest” Over Time

This Study Group will be online

OLLI Study Groups OLLI Study Groups
OLLI Study Groups
The first play to appear in Shakespeare's Folio, but thought to be one of his final plays written. "The Tempest" has become a touchstone in Shakespeare Studies for discussions about genre, authorship, feminism, and postcolonial theory. Yet, not long after its first performances, Shakespeare's play vanished from the stage, appearing only in adapted forms for the next 170 years.

Each meeting, we'll discuss an iteration of "The Tempest," beginning with Shakespeare's play up through Margaret Atwood's 2016 novel "Hag-Seed" in order to consider how approaches to the play have shifted over time.

Instructor Becky Hixon, is a PhD Candidate in English Language & Literature at the University of Michigan where she studies Shakespeare, adaptation, and gender and sexuality studies.

This study group will meet on Thursdays (excluding Thanksgiving) for eight weeks beginning on October 21. Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed prior to the first session.
