ENGL 3310 Shakespeare (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

In this class, we will read and discuss Shakespeare's plays with an emphasis on their status as performed texts with a variety of potential interpretations. How were these plays performed in Elizabethan England, and what shape do they take today? How might conventions of contemporary film and television empower us to reinterpret Shakespeare's genre and style? In addition to traditional readings and assignments, this course will involve in-class performance experiments and a creative project. Texts will likely include Richard III, The Taming of the Shrew, Much Ado About Nothing, Othello, and Cymbeline.
