Study Questions for ENGL 348A (3-credits)Module 1: Lessons 1-3Please read Act Four, Scene Three ofLove’s Labour’s Lost-- a free online version of the text isavailable here: In this scene four men – Biron, the King, Longueville, and Dumaine – each enter the stage thinking thathe is alone onstage. The four men have sworn off worldly entertainment (including women and love) tofocus instead on their studies, but each one arrives in this scene carrying a “love letter” addressed to adifferent woman. Each man, of course, doesn’t want to reveal to his fellows that he has fallen in love;to do so, in this play, would shamefully contravene the oath they all took at the start of the play toabstain from love.To complete this assignment, you do not need to be much more familiar with the play’s plot or itscharacters. Instead, I ask you to read this scene to think about the ways that Shakespeare asks hisaudience to see and to listen to an onstage action in which the characters are themselves engaged inacts of seeing and listening. We shall commence our discussion board thread with this scene’s focus onvision and hearing.Module 2: Lessons 1-2* How do the events in Act Two, Scene One re-play the fraternal contest that featured so prominently inAct One, Scene One?
