Beggar’s Opera

709px-Beggar's_Opera_libretto_with_music_VAJust a reminder that, from week 13, we will be examining John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera. So by Friday 16th you should have:

  1. Read the Oxford classics edition of the text! (Obvious, I know, but I want us to start with an authoritative version).
  2. Read the introduction! As we found with Robinson Crusoe, this is a good place to mine for ideas of where to begin your research.

The worksheet is now available.
