6-Part Lecture Series - Men, Glorious Men
- Customer Reviews (0)
“What a piece of work is a man”, muses Hamlet. The Prince of Denmark struggles to know how he should behave in his various masculine roles – as a son, a lover, a friend, and as a Prince. Is Hamlet a masculine role model, or is he a failure as a man?
This course discusses a wonderful variety of men in literature – romantic heroes, dastardly villains, schoolboys, men of action, serving men and their masters, cads and fools. There will be sexy men, muddled men, men who are treacherous, confused, cool under fire, or the ‘strong and silent’ types. And the literary works in which they appear will provide you with comedy and tragedy, adventure and violence, piety and devotion. You will read some familiar works and hopefully also encounter some that are new to you.
Hamlet concludes “Man delights not me”! Hopefully, after attending this series of lectures, you will not agree.
Celebrate “men, glorious men” in this exciting new course.
