Getting Ready in Zurich for the Shakespeare Week
Participants are asked to read the scheduled plays in advance (there will be no time for this in London and Stratford-upon-Avon). We recommend that students participate in the reading sessions preceding the excursion. These sessions will give participants the opportunity to discuss the plays with an advanced student. In the lectures and Q&A sessions in London and Stratford, you will be expected to be familiar with the plays and to have read the full texts. You will need to have your own texts with you (preferably Arden editions).
