課堂

課堂每兩周進行電影觀看和/或討論。請務必完成所有的閱讀並充分地為投入討論做好準備。



作業

這門課的作業將包括:

  1. 每堂課準備好針對我們所觀看電影的特殊段落的關鍵筆記和注釋。這些筆記的長度、複雜性和格式將隨著不同因素而改變,包括是否輪到你開始進行討論以及我們是否可以得到用於討論電影的線上工具,但是仍將期望每個學生為每部電影至少準備一些簡短且精練的筆記。
  2. 討論介紹/陳述。每個學生將至少介紹一部電影,他們將以一個十分鐘的多媒體報告開始,這些報告針對電影中的某些問題、主題或是模式,利用錄影帶片段,提示錄影帶、數位化視頻光碟或線上工具。這些報告通常由兩個學生一起完成。
  3. 短篇論文。這個學期將要求完成兩份三頁的論文。
  4. 最終專題/報告。在課程的最後兩周,每個學生將針對一部電影或一個有關於多部電影的主題做出一個20分鐘的多媒體論文或報告。這個專題的準備通常由兩個學生協力完成。


教科書

你可能使用任一現代版本,完整作品或是個人戲劇作為你閱讀的原文。早期的四開本和第一本對開原文的作業將使用網路文字和傳真。



推薦讀物

1. 精選作品

《河邊的莎士比亞》(The Riverside Shakespeare),G.Blakemore Evans等人編著 (波士頓:Houghton Midfflin, 1974年第一版,1996年第二版)
《莎士比亞全集》(The Complete Works of Shakespeare),David Bevington 編著 (紐約:朗文出版社,1997年第四版)
《莎士比亞全集》(The Complete Works of Shakespeare),Stanley Wells and Gary Taylor編著(牛津:牛津大學出版社,1986)
《莎士比亞》(The Norton Shakespeare),Stephen Greenblatt等人編著(紐約:Norton,1997)

2. 個人戲劇

Arden版本現在出了他們的第三個系列,並且也是擁有最完整注解的「單行本」系列。

Folger版本(紐約:華盛頓廣場書局)價格低廉,編輯精良並且包含了括弧中的各種讀物。

3. 線上內容

如果在早期內文之間的差別對我們的討論極可能是十分重要的,我們將在莎士比亞電子檔案資料庫(http://shea.mit.edu)中使用電子文檔和傳真,《堡壘上的哈姆雷特》(Hamlet on the Ramparts)(http://shea.mit.edu/ramparts) 和其他的電子資源。

Jeremy Hylton在http://the-tech.mit.edu/Shakespeare的網站上也為所有的莎士比亞戲劇提供了一個便捷的參考。



電影

很多電影都可以在錄影帶店取得。或者嘗試用一些線上的數位化視頻光碟或家庭錄放影機系統出租服務取得。



評論

研習資料的清單部分包含了一些關鍵文章與我們即將研究的電影有關的書籍。在教學時程上使用星號標記,每個人皆應進入閱讀。其他推薦的材料可能對準備期末專題有所幫助。


Class Sessions

Class will meet twice per week for film viewing and/or discussion. Make sure you do all the reading and are prepared to participate fully in the discussion.



Assignments

The assignments for this subject will include:

  1. Notes and annotations keyed to specific passages in the films we watch, prepared for each class. The length, complexity and format of these notes will vary, depending on several factors, including whether it's your turn to begin a discussion and whether we have on-line tools available for the film being discussed, but the expectation will be that each student prepares at least several well-defined short notes for each film.
  2. Discussion introductions/presentations. Each student will introduce at least one film, beginning with a ten-minute multimedia presentation on some question, theme, or pattern in the film, using video clips, cued up videotape, DVD or online tools. These presentations will usually be made by two students working together.
  3. Short papers. Two 3 page papers will be assigned during the term.
  4. Final project/presentation. During the last two weeks of class, each student will present a 20 minute multimedia paper/presentation on a film or a topic relating to several films. The projects will usually be prepared by pairs of students working together.


Texts

You may use any modern edition, either of the Complete Works or of the individual plays as your reading text. Assignments in early quartos and First Folio texts will use internet texts and facsimiles.



Recommended Texts

1. Collected Works

The Riverside Shakespeare, ed. G. Blakemore Evans and others (Boston: Houghton Midfflin, 1st edition 1974, 2nd edition 1996)
The Complete Works of Shakespeare , ed. David Bevington (New York: Longman, 4th edition, 1997)
The Complete Works of Shakespeare, ed. Stanley Wells and Gary Taylor (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1986)
The Norton Shakespeare, ed. Stephen Greenblatt and others (New York: Norton, 1997)

2. Individual Plays

The Arden Editions are now in their 3rd series, and are the most thoroughly annotated of the "separate volume" series.

The Folger Editions (New York: Washington Square Books) are inexpensive, well-edited and include variant readings in brackets.

3. Online

In cases where differences between early texts are likely to become important for our discussions, we will use e-texts and facsimiles in the Shakespeare Electronic Archive (http://shea.mit.edu), Hamlet on the Ramparts(http://shea.mit.edu/ramparts) and other electronic resources.

Jeremy Hylton's site at http://the-tech.mit.edu/Shakespeare also provides a convenient reference for all of Shakespeare's plays.



Films

Most films are available in video stores. Or try some of the online DVD/VHS rental services.



Criticism

A list in the Study Materials section includes a few key articles and books relevant to the films we will study. Starred entries appear in the Calendar and everyone should read them. Others are recommended and may be useful in preparing final projects.
