The Understanders

Well, our 13-week line-by-line discussion of The Merchant of Venice is drawing to a close. It was a grand adventure -- we all thought we knew what the play was about, we thought we understood it. But going through it line-by-line and making sure we understood every word, every nuance, every implication, made us realize the play is deeper and richer and more magnificent than we originally thought -- and we already thought very highly!

The next Understanders is a 17-week discussion of King Lear. If you're in the Santa Fe area, please join us! Check The Understanders web site for more info about what The Understanders is all about, what we've been learning, or to sign up for the next class.
