Course Description:

This course provides an opportunity for guided reading, analysis, and discussion of Shakespeare's plays and poems. Students read and view plays representative of Shakespeare's mastery of a variety of dramatic genres as well as the plays' dominant themes, motifs, and imagery. Students also learn the structure and other defining features of Shakespearean sonnets. The course includes instruction in Shakespeare's life and development as an artist, the Elizabethan worldview, the Elizabethan theater, and Renaissance as well as modern criticism of Shakespeare's work. The plays and poems of Shakespeare reflect the ethos of Elizabethan England but possess a universal relevance that transcends time and place. Because this course may be taken as an alternative to English Composition II, students will be expected to demonstrate competency in writing and research by producing work which is not only grammatically and mechanically correct but which displays effective sentence structure and organization
