Shakespeare, W.: The Comedy of Errors; Shakespeare, W.: The Norton Shakespeare: Essential Plays, Sonnets

Description

Shakespeare wrote a vast number of extraordinary plays.  We'll consider the range of these plays and why this range was important to him.  We'll also explore how the variety of plays in which he wrote affected Shakespeare's representation of plot and character, as well as the literary, social, sexual, religious, political, and philosophical issues he conceptualized through plot and character.  Finally, we'll think about Shakespeare's plays in relation to the range of social types and classes in his mass audience.

[PLEASE NOTE: The Norton collection I've assigned is a paperback of selected plays, not the hardcover complete plays.]
