ENG 121-01 - Introduction to Shakespeare

4 credits (Fall)
This course will pay particular attention to how Shakespeare’s global imagination expands his plays and poems far beyond the space of London. Applying key terms and concepts for the study of literature, we will read representative works  that help us see how his vision was informed by England’s sense of the larger world and how, in turn, his work has later been adapted in international communities. Together, we will build skills in close-reading and will consider questions of performance – both in Renaissance theater and in contemporary film.

Prerequisite: None.
Instructor: Garrison
