This course will explore The Tragedies of King Lear, Othello, Macbeth and Hamlet from a medical viewpoint. The plays will present men and women finding their identities or forge new ones while they struggle to balance obligations to family, society and self. The student will see and analyze their struggle with the outcome of choices made. Through this course, the student shall explore Shakespeare’s dramatic art for conveying human foibles, fallibility and weaknesses well as his deep understanding of our humanity. Students will develop a clinical history of the play’s main character. This information has been collected for the Post-Discipline Online Syllabus Database.
