Opening Note

This is the place where you will find complementary information on the Basismodul 1 as it specifically relates to Course D (Tue 14-16 h, A10 1-121a, Anna Auguscik 12:06, 2 April 2007 (CEST)).

The Shakespeare Drama for this course will be Richard III (1597). You are welcome to read the play in German first, in order to get a general idea (using, for example, a Reclam edition, either bilingual or monoligual). In the course, we will work with the first edition of 1597 (available for download from our main course page and soon also as a mastercopy in Wersig) as well as the critical edition of Richard III (The Arden Edition, second series, ca. 14 EUR at CvO bookshop).

You may use the discussion page above for any questions relating specifically to our course rather than to the entire module.
