U350-219 Shakespearean Drama I

This course includes discussions of five major comedies (Taming of the Shrew, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Merchant of Venice, Twelfth Night, As You Like It), together with an early tragedy (Romeo and Juliet), and two of the better-known history plays (Richard II, Henry IV). You will explore racial and gender bias, intergenerational conflict, realistic versus romantic perspectives, and the stormy, unpredictable nature of romantic love and revolution. You will also consider key stylistic and philosophic features of Shakespeare’s writing.
