This course will examine the dramaturgy of William Shakespeare, beginning early in his career with Comedy of Errors and ending with Othello. In our meetings, we will try to submerge Shakespeare's works within their cultural and intellectual surrounds. Thus, Henry V will be read in relation to the early modern period's theories of just war, while Hamlet will be assessed in light of relevant, early modern theories of melancholy and sadness. Other topics with which we will engage will include Renaissance gender theory (Twelfth Night), and philosophical skepticism (Othello). In an attempt to appreciate the interpretive possibilities opened up by Shakespearean drama, we will regularly view scenes from modern, cinematic adaptations of the plays we read.
