Courses: Shakespeare I (ENGLB225001)

Fall 2010

Class Number: 1251
This introduction to Shakespeare’s works explores the Bard's language, sources, print and stage history, and cultural geography. We’ll think about wordplay and genre, race and nationhood, authority and intimacy, gender and servitude. We’ll read a number of plays and poems, watch film adaptations, and attend a performance. The course will prepare you for a rich array of Shakespearean encounters in the rest of our life: recited, read privately, on stage, at the cinema, quoted and appropriated in a variety of modes and media.
