English Studies (ENGL) - Shakespeare

ENGL 2535  Shakespeare


Three credits of 1000 level ENGL (excluding ENGL 1551 and ENGL 1552).


ENGL 2536 and ENGL 2537


Three hours of lecture per week.




This course introduces students to the field of Shakespeare studies, which includes the plays, their culture, and contemporary research resources. Close formal analysis is supplemented by a treatment of the theatrical aspects of the plays and by the application of current theoretical approaches. This course will also implement performance and play into the class's dialogue with the dramatic texts. "" Play"", not only as text but also as reading strategy, will enrich the pedagogical scene for both teacher and student. Students should expect to read at least ten plays, as well as supplementary historical and scholarly material.
