ENGL 404 - Topics in Non-Shakespearean Renaissance Literature (3 credits)

(Prereq: (1) ENGL 101 , (2) ENGL 102  or ENGL 211 , or any ENGL course at the 200 level or above) This course will focus on the study of Renaissance texts in various genres, with emphasis on non-Shakespearean literatures. Readings and themes will vary by semester, but our analysis will include: the construction and representation of high and low cultures of Renaissance literature; the relationship of the literature to the specific political, intellectual, and social environments within which it was produced; the relationship of gender and authorship; and the transhistorical and transcultural influences of Renaissance literature.
