Advanced Shakespeare 14 3/6/2020 Opening of Antony and Cleopatra
We finally really begin Antony and Cleopatra, discussing Plutarch's interest in character, and Shakespeare's, and what makes a tragic character interesting since we know what the plot will be. Aristotle on pity and terror again: usually the protagonist or main is someone innocent or at worst someone like ourselves: not so in Macbeth. After which we start analyzing the opening scene, with comparisons to Lear and to Hamlet as well (on the quantification of love). Many corny jokes.
