ENGL 233H - Shakespeare - Honors

(3,0) 3 Credits
Prerequisite(s): GPA of 3.5 or permission of instructor.
In spite of the unprecedented degree and rate of change in our times, Shakespeare provides modern readers across the globe a universal touchstone of constancy. We recognize his models of human contrariness; we identify with the power of pathos and magic and madness of characters both centuries old and contemporary. The unifying focus of the course is on the characteristics that make Shakespeare’s language such an effective and enduring medium of meaning. Students use diverse critical perspectives as they read a variety of Shakespeare’s texts, including selected sonnets; representative tragic, comic, and historical plays; and the often-neglected “problem plays”- “Measure for Measure”, and “Troilus and Cressida”. Students may also view one or more performances of plays and do an in-depth study of any additional play using online research.
