Cymbeline, Act I, Scene II, colour stipple engraving (1795) by Thomas Burke after a painting by William Hamilton

Cymbeline is one of Shakespeare's last and most extraordinary plays. It weaves together parted lovers, lost children, a wicked stepmother, feigned death, decapitation, cross-dressing, identity confusion, Jupiter on an eagle, ghosts, a wager on a wife's chastity, Britons gallantly throwing off Roman rule – and still remains coherent. This course disentangles the different threads, explores the themes, language and characterisation, and celebrates the final reconciliations.
