A.P. Literature and Shakespeareanness: October 29, 2014

Focus: How does viewing a performance of Henry IV help us understand the shifts of Acts 3 and 4?

PLC: Shortened Class

1. Warming up with a partner: Establishing the underlying purpose of each scene in Acts 3 and 4; consider what's shifting and why

2. Viewing The Hollow Crown's version of Act 4 with the following focus:

Try to find three directorial (symbolic) choices in The Hollow Crown that emphasize or challenge the underlying purposes you have established for Acts 3 and 4; consider use of colors, physical movements, facial expressions, setting, etc.

(Note to self: Act 3 starts at 56:20; Act 4 starts around 1:24. Also, 4.1 and 4.2 are reversed.)

1. Please check your e-mail and revise your thesis; work on outlines and introductory paragraphs.  See me or e-mail me if you'd like any feedback along the way.

2. If plan to purchase your own copy of Invisible Man, which I highly, highly recommend, please do so by Tuesday of next week.
