ENGL 305 - Shakespeare’s Comedies and Histories


Surveys the early phase of Shakespeare’s writing career, emphasizing the generic features of comedy as the matrix from which emerge not only plays such as A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Twelfth Night, but also the tragic Romeo & Juliet and history plays such as Henry IV Part One and Henry V. These plays open themselves up to questions of gender, religion, and English national identity. Close reading of the playtexts is supplemented by analysis of stage productions and cinematic adaptations. Course Codes: BHR. Prereq: PEQ in Literature.
