Shakespeare, William: Twelfth Night


This seminar will investigate the nature of Shakespearean comedy in Twelfth Night, which involves disguise, cross-dressing, gender-bending, mistaken identities, and misdirected affections. The seminar will read the entire play thorough in the first week or two of the semester, then go through the text again scene by scene, character by character. Each participant will give one "practice" and one formal oral presentation to the rest of the seminar. 

This 1-unit course may not be counted as one of the twelve courses required to complete the English major.
