  • Shakespeare in Liberal Arts Education | Whittier College
    and refine the taste of youth Not so And in fact students who take my Hamlet and its Afterlives class next spring will emerge able to make the case that Hamlet has appealed to different populations in America China and the Middle East for a wide variety of reasons specific to their own time and place The real reason for Hamlet s and others continuing popularity in curricula is decidedly more complex DRIVEN By Context Not so much an author for all time Shakespeare has often been adapted for and harnessed to a specifically American version of moral education In the 19th century extracts from his plays were liberally altered to engage with questions of immigration and national identity they were expurgated to avoid secessionist tensions and they were bowdlerized in response to changing American ideas about women and motherhood In the second half of the 19th century no play was extracted for American readers more than The Merchant of Venice followed closely by Julius Caesar and Hamlet But if this history helps to clarify our continued fixation on the latter two it does not explain the prevalence of Macbeth or Romeo and Juliet Nor does it explain the waning of The Merchant of Venice In order to understand this evolution we need to take into account three historical milestones the development of English as a formal discipline of study beginning in the 1890s the invention of the teenager in the 1930s and 40s and rising concerns with anti Semitism after World War II In the first quarter of the 20th century the reigning objectives of Shakespearean education inculcating piety patriotism and eloquence were supplanted by new goals that arose with the evolution of the English discipline A first stage employed Shakespeare s plays in a kind of literary moral science through character study students were asked to consider the psychology of exemplary characters and pursue questions regarding for example Hamlet s obligation to avenge his father or Brutus s culpability in the conspiracy against Julius Caesar This emphasis on character development would dominate American schools for most of the 20th century dovetailing with the New Critical emphasis on close reading that filtered into schools in the 1950s and 60s In a close reading formal elements such as characterization imagery setting and word patterns are marshaled to illuminate the theme of the text usually focusing on timeless themes This is doubtless the way you were taught in your English courses and it remains the dominant mode in American high school classes More than any other play by Shakespeare Macbeth fits this New Critical approach it has no subplot to suggest alternative themes the protagonist is the subject of every scene and imagery clusters and word patterns stud and unify the plot structure However the canon of Shakespeare for American education was significantly shaped by historical and cultural movements specific to the middle of the 20th century Thus at the same time that critical trends were promoting the rise of Macbeth
