Line by Line Shakespeare

These videos will guide you through Shakespeare's work with text and visual annotations. Line by line, you will explore Shakespeare's gift for language and invention. I don't place emphasis on themes, motifs, or symbols, although undoubtedly you will see all these elements at play. My focus is on helping your students read Shakespeare as they would enjoy any other author.
