Master Class with Charles Pierce, Ph.D.

Passion can often bring pleasure, but it can also lead to suffering and even tragedy. It can be both self- fulfilling and self-destructive. We shall read five plays that dramatize this theme: Medea (Euripides), Othello (Shakespeare), Antony and Cleopatra (Shakespeare), Phèdre (Racine), and A Streetcar Named Desire (Tennessee Williams).

Charles E. Pierce, Jr. received his Ph. D. in English literature from Harvard. He was a Professor of English Literature at Vassar College for 17 years and Director of the Morgan Library and Museum in New York for 20 years.
