In this course students will read and experience a variety of Shakespeare’s work. The course will cover a play from each of Shakespeare’s three dramatic genres (comedy, history, tragedy) and some of his poetry. In addition, students will watch filmed and/or live performances of Shakespeare’s dramas in order to explore the variety of interpretations that the texts can generate. The course’s writing emphasis will be on expository work, but there will be some creative work as well. Students will also engage in the dramatization of some scenes from Shakespeare’s plays.
Note: summer reading requirement for this course will be announced in the spring via the Carondelet/De La Salle websites.
