THA-3010 Shakespeare: "On the Stage and on the Page"

3 credits

Prerequisite: THA-1041.

This survey of Shakespeare will examine the playwright's use of various dramatic genres—comedy, romance, tragedy, and history—from a theatrical perspective. Students will explore ways in which a playwright's blueprint—the text of the play—becomes a full-blown theater production. Dramatic structure, character, themes and plot will also be given focus as embodied in performance. Meets Part III of the GECC.
