Apologia’s Live Online British Literature: Shakespeare class explores six classic plays from Shakespeare’s body of work. Students will discover that Shakespeare’s greatness is found not just in his brilliant and beautiful use of language but also in his profound ideas, which were often heavily influenced by his reading of recent English translations of the Bible. His themes relate to the longings, hopes, fears, struggles, and successes of students’ own lives, which helps them connect their life experiences with the truth of God’s word.
