ENGL112 SC — Shakespeare:Tragedies & Romances


Prakas, Tessie




English or Engl Wrld Lit

Grading style:

Letter Grade

Course description:

This course focuses on Shakespeare's four major tragedies and on the four plays now known as the "romances". We will consider the influence of both classical and early modern revenge tragedy on Shakespeare, exploring the issues of governance and inheritance that are at the heart of his most famous works. We will also attend to the complex motivations of the protagonists who give these plays their names. In turning to the romances, we will consider how style and subject matter (as well as chronology) mark these late plays: should we read them as tragedies gone wrong-or gone right?
