Shakespeare's career spans a troubled age that sees the emergence of the modern state and the deconsecration of the monarchy, the invention of modern subjectivity, the interrogation of patriarchal governance, and the rise of mercantile capitalism and colonial enterprise. This course introduces students to the texts of Shakespeare's plays and their major genres against this historical backdrop. It assumes no previous knowledge of Shakespeare.
