01   TTH6  CAC    05401  FULTON     SC-205

This course provides a survey of Shakespeare’s great plays written during the reign of James I. Attention will be given to Shakespeare’s context, the history of Shakespeare criticism and reception, and especially to film and stage interpretation. Since plays are written to be performed rather than read in silence, we will spend some time in class watching clips of movies and filmed performances. Readings will include Measure for MeasureOthelloMacbeth, King Lear, Winter’s Tale, Antony and Cleopatra, and The Tempest. Early modern historical period credit. 

Requirements: two tests and a final exam; two essays.
