Ibsen, Shaw, and the Play of Ideas|
Spring 2009 not offered
This course is an intensive study of selected works by two of the greatest figures in modern drama whose careers remarkably parallel and intersect with each other. Shaw wrote the first book on Ibsen in English, and the two together were pathbreakers in transforming 19th-century theatrical entertainment into 20th-century dramatic literature.
