ENGL 020. Shakespeare


Topics in this survey of Shakespeare's plays, including kingship, comedy and tragedy, family, sexuality, race, performance, language, and the rewriting of history. We will frequently return to the question of theater's place in early modern England, while also examining the place Shakespeare holds in the cultures we inhabit. The list of plays may include Taming of the Shrew, Henry V, Midsummer Night's Dream, Twelfth Night, Measure for Measure, Hamlet, Othello, Lear, and The Tempest.
