English 217: Shakespeare

Instructor: Professor David Landreth

This course fulfills an elective requirement for the DE in REMS.

An introduction to the study of Shakespeare at the graduate level. We’ll examine a range of contemporary approaches to Shakespeare’s plays and poems, and consider how they emerge from longstanding preoccupations across four hundred years of critical reception. I’ve ordered the Norton Shakespeare at the bookstore, but you may use any recent edition of the texts.
