What you'll learn in this literature class:

Shakespeare began his career with a sequence of romantic comedies: Midsummer Night’s Dream, As You Like It, and Twelfth Night.

In the first of these plays, the lovers lament that, “the course of true love never did run smooth,” and it certainly goes haywire in all these plays as a result of the love drug in Midsummer and gender disguise in As You Like It and Twelfth Night. Ultimately, however, Puck assures us, “Jack shall have Jill, / Naught shall go ill.”

We’ll explore the tensions, obstacles, and confusion as well as the happy endings.
