LIT 218-IH1 - The Age of Shakespeare

Description
Shakespearean drama – including history, comedy, and tragedy – serves as the anchoring focus of this course. Read and discuss Shakespeare’s playwriting alongside contemporaries such as Christopher Marlowe and Ben Jonson, with particular attention to the historical and cultural conditions informing their work. Explore topics like social class, familial relations, human sexuality and selfhood, as depicted in early modern literature. In turn, students consider how those representations might inform our understanding of society today.
