English 129 | Intro to Shakespeare | Spring 2016

This class analyzed the works of William Shakespeare including Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, The Sonnets, and Julius Caesar.

Throughout the course, we were instructed to keep a "commonplace book" in which we would inscribe passages of Shakespeare word-for-word and categorize them into 10 themes of our choosing.

Our final project was very open-ended and asked us to adapt Shakespeare to an art form that we are familiar with. I used my commonplace book theme of "nasty women" and re-created the covers of a few Shakespearian works. The most prominent female characters are featured on the covers.
