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, and the interrogation of the patriarchal control of sexuality. This course introduces students to the texts of Shakespeare's plays, their major genres and themes of state, subject, and family. It assumes no previous knowledge of Shakespeare.
