Wine, Chocolate & Shakespeare on Love
Adult Enrichment / ACE Highlights -
As we drink wine and taste chocolate together on Valentine’s Day, we will read and consider a range of Shakespeare’s most intimate sonnets to make sense of love in its genuine complexity. Shakespeare gives an exquisite voice to the mysteries of love throughout his works. He engages deeply with the totality of human experience, and collectively we will parse his words and phrases to explore the human understanding of love. No prior experience with Shakespeare is necessary, though you may want to refamiliarize yourself with Romeo and Juliet and Othello, which so beautifully explore the nature of love. Please note: You must be 21 years old to enroll in this class. Tuition includes all food and beverages.
