Early Shakespeare

ENGL A324
3.00 crs.

This course provides an introduction to the dramatic and poetic works from Shakespeare's literary “apprenticeship” of the early 1590s to 1600. Situating Shakespeare’s works in their dynamic historical context—including the Protestant Reformation, the age of exploration, the rise of capitalism, the urban landscape of London, and the popular new public theatres—we study how these plays and poems spoke to Renaissance auditors and how they pose timeless questions for new audiences.
