Description

This course will cover some of the finest satirical plays on the British stage from 1660 to 1777. As our theme, we will take up the way dramatists created racy plots of sexual intrigue by way of satirizing the obstacles to happy coupling in a world of marriages arranged by elders. Our authors will be drawn from the likes of Aphra Behn, William Wycherly, George Etherege, John Dryden, George Farquhar, John Gay, and Oliver Goldsmith. Three short written efforts will be required, including a one-act play (5 pages), and you will read about a half-dozen of the wittiest plays in English literature.
