Study of an Author: Shakespeare

ENGL 101.920
instructor(s):
MW 5-8:10

This is an introduction to literary study through the works of William Shakespeare. We will read several works and approach them--both in discussion and in writing--from a range of critical perspectives. The author's relation to his or her time, to literary history generally, and to the problems of performance, are likely to be emphasized. This course is designed for the General Requirement and is ideal for the student wishing to take an English course but not necessarily intending to major.
