ENGL 2230 - Introduction to Shakespeare (3CR)


(3L) Students are introduced to the works of Shakespeare through careful reading (and re-reading) of representative major plays and/or sonnets in order to become acquainted with Shakespeare’s dramatic and poetical art. Both formal lecture and discussion will cover each reading. From time to time the class will watch tapes of scenes from the plays in order to understand how the plays might be staged and actors interpret roles. In addition to reading between eight and 12 plays and a dozen or so sonnets, students will take mid-term and final objective and essay examinations, report on the interpretation by a major critic (Johnson, Coleridge, Hazlitt, Bradley, Harrison, and so on), and write one short and one extended (possibly research) essay.

Prerequisites: ENGL 1010 . ENGL 1020  recommended.
