ENG 233 Shakespeare

Prerequisite: ENG 102  
3 credits

This course will examine selected themes and issues in Shakespeare’s major plays from a number of critical perspectives. Topics for each semester might focus on a single aspect of the playwright’s work such as Shakespeare’s tragic perspective from an examination of his Tragedies and Histories; the playwrights comic universe from a study of Shakespeare’s Comedies; the playwright as a poet, a study of his sonnets; or an examination of several themes such as love, and evaluate that theme as it suggests itself throughout Shakespeare’s canon. The class might also focus on Shakespeare in performance or Shakespeare on film. This course may be taken only once for credit.
