* Henry VI, Parts 1, 2, and 3

* Meetings
This course meets once a week for discussion and review of assigned homework.
* Homework
No written work will be required: the students will be obliged to read the relevant plays and come to class ready to discuss them.
* Prerequisites
None necessary; does not overlap (or presuppose) Summer Shakespeare I. These courses can be taken in any order.
* Recommended background
Some familiarity with Shakespearean English is helpful; some experience seeing Shakespeare on stage or on screen would also be useful.
