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.

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.
