Shakespeare & Yiddish: Online Course

Hosted By: Yiddish Book Center (Amherst, MA)

Why did Shakespeare’s plays become such a significant part of Yiddish theater? Join literature scholar Ilan Stavans for this four-part course that will concentrate on the sonnets, King Lear, The Merchant of Venice, and Romeo and Juliet. We will investigate the intimate relationship between Shakespeare and Yiddish language and cultural production and will learn about the fascinating creative lives of Yiddish playwrights like Jacob Gordin and actors such as Maurice Schwartz, Jacob Adler, and Solomon Mikhoels.
