How to Work through the Course

Purchase the Course Guide for this course from the University Bookstore, then read through the Course Outline at the beginning, and look at the Assignment File at the end of the Guide. Each play is discussed in a separate section of the Guide. You will find readings associated with each play, and a detailed commentary on it, of the kind you might find in a normal lecture. In the commentary, you will find informal, provocative questions highlighted. Think about these as you read and reread the plays. The discussion of each play concludes with a more formal set of study questions, each designed to be part of the discussion in tutorial and on the Bulletin Board. The module booklets also suggest when it would be helpful to listen to the audio tapes.
