The Great Courses: Shakespeare’s Tragedies

Course 2752

Professor Clare R. Kinney (University of Virginia)

The Great Courses-The Teaching Company

Two DVDs with twenty-four discs and Course Guide (120 pp.)


24 lectures  |  30 minutes each

Shakespeare's contributions to stage and language are unequaled. In what Professor Clare R. Kinney calls the "power and audacity of his poetry and stagecraft," Shakespeare has left audiences breathless these past four centuries.

Experienced students of Shakespeare, those new to his work, and those who may be returning after many years away, will all find it makes an optimal addition to their libraries of books and of other Teaching Company literature courses.

Professor Kinney's aim is to take you deep within each play. You'll observe Shakespeare's protagonists struggling to make choices in the face of competing social, moral, and psychological pressures and "clawing [from] their pain and horror," as she puts it, "a kind of insight."


Professor Kinney supplies a series of insights that teach a nuanced understanding of each play's meaning—a gift that will increase the dramatic impact of every Shakespearean tragedy you see on the stage or screen, or visualize as you read them, as well as enhance your ability to form insights on your own with each reading or performance.


As Professor Kinney works through the plays, you'll see how Shakespeare returns again and again to a set of themes that resonate through his work.
