Course Description

This course takes up Shakespeare's best plays, examining them in terms of genre, or literary kind. We will focus on what makes a tragedy a tragedy, a comedy a comedy, and a history play a history play.

Grading Policy

There will be two examinations. Attendance is required; all unexcused absences will count against the final grade.

Three 5-7-page papers will be required, for a minimum of 16 pages of writing. This is a substantial writing component course, and at least 50% of the final grade will come from assigned papers.


Our main text will be The Riverside Shakespeare, 2nd edition; we will read Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Tempest, 1 Henry IV, and Henry V.
