Ms. Roche is a highly skilled teacher. She is able to bring together key elements of this rich literary experience in an accessible way without losing any of the profound complexities inherent in these bedrock works of art. In a typical class we cover elements of the play’s powerful language, its historical moment, the politics of the time and the social history that is always suggestive in Shakespeare’s work.
Just to have the opportunity to read the plays and listen to the discussion is a pleasure. Seeing films of the plays is an added bonus. You fill a void.
Marie has unusual skill in creating a learning experience for ALL no matter their academic or experiential backgrounds
