William Shakespeare is one of the greatest writers in the history of the English language. His plays and his poems are some of the best-known works in English writing, with a major influence on the development of our society and our culture. We have all heard of Shakespeare. We all have been influenced by the works of Shakespeare.

Despite this Shakespeare is often seen as difficult and challenging, especially by newer students to his work.

In this taster session we shall see why Shakespeare is interesting to study and why his work is both accessible and entertaining. We shall use this session to explore why Shakespeare has had such an impact on our culture, our literature, our thinking, and our society – alongside exploring some practical ways to enjoy his work.

In this one session course we shall see why English literature is worth studying in both literary and historical terms. We shall briefly outline the history of English writing and see how reading English literature can improve our understanding of our ideas, our culture, and our times.
