This package contains notes from the lectures and assigned readings for Week 3. Disclaimer: My notes will remain as MY OWN interpretation of the material. These notes are designed to help you gain an outside perspective on the material, or help you to achieve a multi-aspect understanding of material that might be difficult. As such, they will point out only what may be considered important for the exams, and minimalist commentary on the plays we are reading.
