This course offers an overview of Shakespeare's drama, addressing plays from across his career and in each of the genres in which he wrote. Our primary focus throughout the semester will be on the way Shakespeare's plays work as theater. This means that while historical and cultural context will certainly be addressed, our primary goal will be to understand the unique ways in which Shakespeare used the material and conceptual resources of performance. Among the questions that will guide our work are: What kind of theatricality does Shakespeare's language make possible? How are spectators implicated in the world of the plays? What are the theatrical devices through which meaning is generated on Shakespeare's stage? What is it about Shakespeare's language and dramaturgy that makes his plays especially speculative? Linked to this course is an optional, end-of-term trip (with a limited number of spots!) to London and Stratford where students will have the opportunity to see a number of Shakespeare's plays performed at the Globe and the RSC.
