ENGL 127 - Shakespeare’s Comedy

Semester Hours: 3
Comedy is a dramatic structure in which the reversal of fortune goes from bad to good, and moves toward the resolution of social conflicts through recognition, union, and reunion. For Shakespeare, this means the formation of a new society out of a flawed one, through the institutions of class and marriage. This class will trace that idea through several of Shakespeare’s so-called “comedies” written at various points in his life, with an emphasis on investigating both the “romantic” and “anti-romantic” interpretations of these works.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
WSC 1 and 2. Open only to students who have fulfilled the Writing Proficiency Exam requirement. (Formerly 184Y.)

January 2010 Offering:
