Comment: Re: SHK 11.1308 Re: Pedagogy
On the subject of pedagogy, and also of early texts, I wonder if anyone
can think of scenes for four or five that differ considerably in three
or four early texts of any of the following plays: Henry the fourth,
part one; Henry V; Richard III; Merry Wives; Love's Labours Lost; Titus
Andronicus; or the Merchant of Venice.
I'm be teaching them in the fall, and found, in the past, that one nice
way to illustrate the differences between early texts is to ask groups
of students to read them aloud. Unfortunately, I always conducted the
exercise with Hamlet, and it's not on the syllabus this time around.
