Shakespeare's Histories: Shakespeare Workshop

Author: Edited by Ken Watson, Publisher: Phoenix

This volume offers workshop approaches for studying some of the more popular of Shakespeare’s histories.

    Richard II
    Henry IV Part 1
    Henry V
    Richard III

The approaches offered will help students gain critical insights into:

  • Shakespeare’s language
  • theatrical forms and devices
  • themes
  • staging
  • character

The student-centred interactive strategies presented will also encourage students to bring a play alive by exploring form and content which takes the play off the page and, in the imagination of the students, onto the stage.

This approach not only gives students a greater understanding and appreciation of the plays as theatre but also helps them approach more traditional literary criticism with greater confidence.
