Medieval Drama: Read It and Be in It
ENGL 224
Fall 2016 not offered
Crosslisting: MDST 242, THEA 224

This course will examine early English drama in its many forms, from the civic mystery cycles of the 15th century to the morality play Mankind to Tudor, plays famously indebted to the conventions of medieval theater, such as Marlowe's Doctor Faustus (1592). We will cover topics including the role of drama in defining communal identities, dramatic interpretations of gender, and the responses of drama to contemporary social and religious controversies. Most readings will be in modernized and annotated Middle English, so we will pay close attention to language.
