Description

A survey of English drama from the sixteenth to the seventeenth centuries. We will consider the drama from a variety of perspectives: its roots in classical and medieval theater; its generic diversity and complexity; the business practices of the professional theater companies; the social status of actors and playwrights; contemporary literature for and against the theater; and recent critical controversy on the subject. (This is a reading course, which means that there will be plenty to read but less to write.)
