Surrounded by men and women whose skills -- as doctors, nurses, and therapists -- seemed eminently more practical than her own, Rodriguez, a hairdresser and mother of two from Michigan, despaired of being of any real use. Yet she soon found she had a gift for befriending Afghans, and once her profession became known she was eagerly sought out by Westerners desperate for a good haircut and by Afghan women, who have a long and proud tradition of running their own beauty salons.

The Bedford Companion to Shakespeare I want you to read the McDonald book in such a way as to get a general sense of what kinds of things one needs to bear in mind when reading or seeing Shakespeare--needs to look up or look out for but need not commit to memory.
I will take up all the topics that concern Shakespeare scholars, but I will not take them up systematically.
I find that presenting a topic like ""Establishing Shakespeare's Texts"" causes people to try to memorize a lot of distinguished guesswork and understand nothing. Instead of organizing the communal and active ignorance of the last years of scholarship, I will wait for particulars of classroom discussion to invite comment and background on printing-house practices, Shakespeare's stage, the composition of his audience, and stuff like that.
If we work from stray particulars, you are less likely than you might otherwise be to come away with ""knowledge"" of matters about which we have--and have only evidence enough for--pure but immensely detailed guesses.
I don't yet know how I will want to use in-class time, but I will certainly concentrate on Shakespeare's language and on the plays as plays--experiences for audiences--and on what it is about them that has caused the western world and much of the eastern to value them so highly.
Moreover, I may substitute one or another play for something in the old list; for instance, I am currently--for the first time in my life--interested in The Taming of the Shrew and will add that if my interest holds up.
I'm also thinking some about Measure for Measure. I will give spot passage quizzes daily--or almost daily. Their purpose will be to make certain that you keep up with the reading and that you understand the surface sense and the syntactic physics of all the sentences you read.

Recall, too, that Saldivar understands Americo Paredes's "The Hammon and the Beans" as a literary allegory of the cultural practice of "signifying]" on both Spanish and English—and that Saldivar's rendering of this two-handed "signifying]" as both a move toward greater generality and greater particularity is nicely captured again when he.
