About this course:

Sometimes other people’s travails are a way to provide perspective on our own. Each week, we read and discuss a different dramatic masterpiece from the collection Eight Great Tragedies: The Complete Texts of the World’s Great Tragedies from Ancient times to the Twentieth Century, beginning with Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus, Oedipus the King by Sophocles, and Hippolytus by Euripides, followed by King Lear by Shakespeare, Ghosts by Ibsen, Miss Julie by Strindberg, and Desire Under the Elms by O’Neill. In each instance, we examine the nuances of the concept of tragedy from ancient times until today.
