I've heard things regarding the syllabus for this class I'm taking fall quarter that instill nervousness in me. Brecht and Shakespeare. Do I sound like an ass when I say I don't like Shakespeare, that he doesn't speak to me, that I find those classical tragedy structures which can be placed on so many things, boring?
Is it at least interesting iconoclasm to go after that and not the language (which I have no problems reading, although I don't find it especially compelling or beautiful)?
Oh well, we'll see how it goes, what we're actually reading, as opposed to just what I've heard.
