Description

The 2022-2023 academic year will mark the 400th anniversary of the publication of William Shakespeare's First Folio—when the first collection of his plays appeared in print. In this mini course, we will study some of the features of the folio— including its intriguing table of contents and its informative list of actors—before turning to one of the plays that appears in a different form in this printing than it had previously. The play in question is Hamlet, one of the most influential literary texts in the European tradition. What is it about Hamlet that has caused it to draw so much interest on the part of so many for so long? As a way of responding to this question, we will take into account the circumstances surrounding the play's textual incarnations. The paperback, Pelican edition of Hamlet will be assigned.

Course Requirements:

Course requirements will include a midterm and a final.
