ENG 350 - Shakespeare


Prerequisites: ENG 100  (or CW 210  and CW 220 ) and 200 or 300 level WTNG course
Requirement Fulfillment: Fulfills a course requirement in the English Literature Core Concentration
This course is not for passive readers. Shakespeare wrote for the stage, for live performance. Each week, while students concentrate on reading closely the playwright’s written word, they also transform their classroom into his stage, collectively bringing his words to life. But Shakespeare’s art, catholic in nature and scope, is also a historic reservoir, providing students a rich opportunity to explore the social, political, religious, scientific, and historical conditions that underpin his works. Students investigate Renaissance England’s daily life-from bearbaiting to feasting to sumptuary laws-and its political machinations and religious teachings–from rancorous kings and “tavern diplomacy” to man’s new relationship with God.
