Primary Instructor:

A study of major dramatic works from the revenge tradition that flourished on the Elizabethan and Jacobean stage and included many of the most popular plays of the period. We will read plays by a number of Shakespeare’s contemporaries and a select few Shakespearean plays which will highlight the energetic dialogue between playwrights and acting companies of the period. Designed along the lines of English 367, this course can be taken either as a sequel or as an alternative to 367. Plays will be read intensively as theatrical and literary works, and also will be considered in relation to complex social and political issues of the period. Among the plays likely to be studied: The Spanish Tragedy, The Jew of Malta, Titus Andronicus, Hamlet, The Revenger’s Tragedy, The Changeling, The Duchess of Malfi. Approximate book cost: $100 (available at Shaman Drum Bookshop). There will be a midterm and a final exam, as well as two relatively short essays.
