This class aims to give students a good historical and critical grounding in Shakespeare's drama and its central place in Renaissance culture. Our study will include attention to dramatic forms, Shakespeare's themes, and social and historical contexts, including early modern English theater history. The course combines lectures and hands-on work in weekly discussions focused on performance, close reading, and questions raised by the plays. We will also view some film adaptations of Shakespeare. Fall semester plays include The Merchant of Venice, Twelfth Night, The Tempest, Othello, King Lear, Richard II, Henry IV Part One, and Henry V. Summer semester plays may vary.
When Offered Fall, Summer.
