CPEA 203 - I Hate Romeo and Juliet or Shakespeare and the Nature of Prejudice (4 Cr.)


Why do some people find Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet so hard to like or even appreciate? This course explores the nature of prejudice in general, and prejudice in and about Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet specifically. By examining our own misgivings about the play, and about Shakespeare in general, we will find out how to make the play accessible, maybe even enjoyable to 9th graders in an in-school setting. We will examine the nature of prejudice which is not only a major theme in the play, but also a major block to learning and social development. Restricted to first-year and sophomore students or others with instructor permission. Curry.
