A class which turned out to be a lot on verse drama, and how and why it works, partly based on Evelyn Tribble's ideas about "fluent forgetting" (which I mentioned before) in her book Cognition in the Globe.  Lots of stuff on proto-Indo-European and on how poetic lines work: "loose onsets, strict endings."  How Shakespeare makes us focus on particular words but also justifies that focus.  Hint: rhyme.  We finally get to talking about 5.3, and to Shakespeare's bad Dad pun on Macbeth's refusal to "shake with fear."  Antony and Cleopatra officially starts next week, but we'll have one more day on Act V of Macbeth.
