ENGL 319 - Shakespeare and Company


FDR: HL Literature Distribution
Credits: 3

Prerequisite: an English course numbered between 201 and 295 and another English course numbered between 222 and 299. Focusing on the repertory and working conditions of the two play companies with which he was centrally involved, this course examines plays by Shakespeare and several of his contemporary collaborators and colleagues (Jonson, Middleton, Fletcher). Attentive to stage history and the evolution of dramatic texts within print culture, students consider the degree to which Shakespeare was both a representative and an exceptional player in Renaissance London’s show business.
