This course enables students to study drama as practiced by Shakespeare. While examining the history of Shakespearean production and the historical and cultural contexts of Shakespeare's England, students practice close, critical readings of at least one tragedy, one comedy, and one history play. To help them grasp Shakespeare's dramatic technique, students may participate in dramatic readings, block and deliver short scenes from key plays, and compare and contrast actors' interpretations of various dramatic scenes.
