Shakespeare
Department Section Description: 

This introductory course will cover four of Shakespeare’s earlier plays – two tragedies and two comedies. After orienting ourselves to Shakespeare’s language, culture, and composing process, we will develop a glossary of dramatic terms and consider issues of interpretation. Our primary focus throughout the term, however, will be on close reading and analysis of the plays, paying careful attention to the details of language and textual evidence to support various interpretations. We will also consider the work of performance in embodying dramatic meaning and a variety of interpretations.
