LT 351 - Shakespeare the Dramatist
This course has a two-pronged focus; on the one hand, it is an opportunity to undertake a detailed study of Shakespeare’s verbal and theatrical languages, and on the other hand, it equips you to investigate London’s importance in shaping Shakespeare’s plays and Shakespeare’s importance in shaping some of the fiercest debates about agency and government, family, and national identity in London and the world today. The two concerns are tightly interlaced and demonstrate how Shakespeare continues to occupy a dominant status in English literature and culture today.
