Shakespeare’s Globe Notes: Holly Dugan Material covered today not on final. Globe theater 1599-1614 Rebuilt ended in 1644 Then rebuilt now in the “globe” in London Shakespeare now and then – how do his plays continue to shape our world and vice versa. Twitter: @gwuengl @trickyholly #gwu1340 “all the world’s a stage” Anonymous (movie) – shows that close reading has a point. Coriolanus (movie) – looks badass; film is marketing to us so that it has the same effect as the play did at the time (what we want to do in this class) Coriolanus - Play set in early Rome dramatizing disaster with democracy defeats an areal plebeians hate him bad things happen; 1607 because there was a long history of rioting in London (7 months straight of rioting in England) king dissolved the church and gives the area to nobleman; church gave food to peasants now they’re hungry; Shakespeare owned some of this land; 11 riots between 1592-1597; tends to be performed in times of war
