Renaissance Classics

Winter Course

"Outstanding course from an excellent experienced teacher. I would take any future course this leader offers." "Crewe is phenomenal as a literary and historical guide‐‐his perspective and his use of language (plus his melodic voice) are special." Jonathan Crewe is back to lead a winter course. Jonathan is the Leon Black Emeritus Professor of Shakespearean Studies at Dartmouth.

We will study several key works often taken to epitomize the European Renaissance mindset from 15th through 16th Centuries. These often short, often playful works had a disproportionately large impact on European literature, culture, and philosophy, and they helped to launch Renaissance humanism; they also represent much of what we take to have been new and exciting about Renaissance thought. We will consider some claims - often vehemently denied - about why the Renaissance remains innovatively foundational for modern culture. I hope we will read these texts with pleasure and understanding.

Tuesdays, January 15 - February 19 from 12:00 - 2:00 PM at the DOC House in Hanover, NH. Please call 603-646-0154 to register or click here. $60 course fee.
