Description

This module studies texts by Shakespeare and contemporary dramatists in the context of Renaissance England, and as manifestations of some important concerns of the culture of the time: the theatre and theatricality; identity and self-fashioning; masculinity and femininity. The plays chosen are a representative selection, and will offer students a broad knowledge of the writings of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, as well as some of the most significant cultural and intellectual movements of the period. Each play will be studied in relation to relevant contextual, critical and theoretical materials.
