Shakespeare, W.: The Riverside Shakespeare


This course treats the second half of Shakespeare�s career, focusing on the major tragedies, the so-called �problem plays� and romances. Our general approach will be to read each text closely and with attention to the socio-historical issues at play. Although largely a lecture course, discussion is warmly welcomed. There will be a number of writing assignments of different types, and, time permitting, some films that may give us an opportunity to explore more contemporary interpretations of Shakespeare.
