Shakespeare´s works are among the greatest of humanity´s cultural expressions and, as such, demand to be experienced and understood. But, simply put, Shakespeare is difficult. His language and culture - those of Elizabethan England - are greatly different from our own, and his poetry, thick with metaphorical imagery and double meanings, can be hard to penetrate. Yet the keys to understanding Shakespeare are written into the plays themselves. If you can learn to recognize the playwright´s own clues, you´ll become able to engage meaningfully with his language, to follow the plot structures and themes that drive his plays, and to track the development of his characters. Over the course of 24 lectures, this innovative and penetrating exploration of Shakespeare´s plays reveals how to enter Shakespeare´s dramatic world, how to grasp what´s happening in any of his plays, and how to enjoy them fully both on the page and the stage. Under Professor Conner´s expert guidance, shaped by decades of studying and performing Shakespeare, you learn more than 40 interpretive tools, drawn from the texts themselves, that give you direct insight into the plays. These guiding principles allow you to follow the narratives of the plays as they unfold, with a clear understanding of how the plays function and fit together. The professor also reveals fascinating details of Shakespeare´s era, which shed further light on the plays and the way his contemporary audiences perceived them. This course builds the skills that allow you to reach your own understanding of the plays - to deeply comprehend Shakespeare´s transcendent poetic language, the spellbinding world of his great characters and stories, and his revelatory reflections on human experience.

Not to be missed by readers of Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell. It is AD 54. The soldiers of the Roman army patrol a growing Empire, from the Mediterranean to the North Sea, from the Atlantic to the banks of the Nile. Rome brutally enforces its rule, and its legions are the most efficient and aggressive fighting force in the world. Two battle-scarred veterans of this army, Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro, have survived years of campaigning in Britannia and have been recalled to Rome. Their time in the teeming, dangerously political city is short, and soon they are travelling with the Praetorian Guard to Spain, a restless colony where simmering tension in the face of Roman rule is aggravated by bitter rivalry amongst the natives.
