ENGL 311 - Topics in Shakespeare (3 credits)

(Prereq: ENGL 101  and ENGL 102  with a grade of ‘C’ or better) In this course students will be familiarized with plays that represent the spectrum of Shakespeare’s drama, including comedies, tragedies, histories, romances, and problem plays. We may approach these texts from cultural, theatrical, socio-historical, and literary perspectives, and read each play closely as an artistic construction, a script for popular consumption, and a commentary on the political atmosphere of a period both similar to and different from our own. We may also consider the present place of Shakespeare’s drama in diverse cultures around the world. F.
