LIT 6605 - Shakespeare and His Interprete
Students study four plays of Shakespeare, familiarizing themselves with critical essays on the plays from various interpretive schools and periods. Play selection varies from year to year, but will include some tragedies (such as those often taught in the high school curriculum: Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, Hamlet, and Macbeth). In addition to close readings of texts, is the study of Shakespeare's sources, authorship questions, language, genres, textual issues, and historical and political context. Students read and discuss essays reflecting various schools of contemporary criticism and the history of Shakespeare criticism.
