English Renaissance Drama
ENGL 111
Fall 2006 not offered

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 attempts to remedy this deficiency by reading Shakespeare alongside a representative sample of some of the most compelling plays of his contemporaries and rivals.
