ENGL 252 - Shakespeare


FDR: HL Literature Distribution
Credits: 3

Prerequisite: completion of FDR:FW requirement. Same as MRST 252. A study of the major genres of Shakespeare’s plays, employing analysis shaped by formal, historical, and performance-based questions. Emphasis is given to tracing how Shakespeare’s work engages early modern cultural concerns, such as the nature of political rule, gender, religion, and sexuality. A variety of skills are developed in order to assist students with interpretation, which may include verse analysis, study of early modern dramatic forms, performance workshops, two medium-length papers, reviews of live play productions, and a final, student-directed performance of a selected play.
