Renaissance Drama
ENGL 264
Fall 2009
Section: 01  

Largely because of the institutionalization of what Shaw mockingly dubbed "bardolatry," most modern readers' encounter with English Renaissance drama starts and ends with the plays of Shakespeare. As a consequence, very few students become acquainted with other works from the Tudor and Stuart stage. This course aims to remedy this deficit by reading a representative sample of some of the most provocative plays of his contemporaries and rivals, including Christopher Marlowe, Ben Jonson, Thomas Middleton, Thomas Dekker, John Marston, John Webster, Francis Beaumont, and John Fletcher.
