Article 1 (Mar 2018): Shakespeare had a good run, but is it over?

March 28, 2018
Born 454 years ago on April 23, Shakespeare and his 38 plays and 154 sonnets are said to make up the foundation of English literature.  He had a good run, but it appears to be over.  Today, of the 52 highest ranked universities and liberal arts colleges, only four require English majors to take a class on the Bard, according to a study by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni.  Instead, schools offer courses on vampires, cyborgs, popular film and television. Schools are also increasing readings on race, class, gender and sexuality, according to ACTA.  The four universities that required a course dedicated to Shakespeare were Harvard University, Wellesley College, the US Naval Academy and the University of California at Berkeley.
