Graduate Course Descriptions

Summer I 2015


Topics in Literature:  Renaissance Drama
Dr. Walker
MTWR 10:15-12:20
MO 207
Shakespeare’s contemporaries wrote many great plays, and this course will consider several of them. In other words, our focus will be on 16th- and 17th-century English drama exclusive of Shakespeare. We will explore Christopher Marlowe’s portrayal of a man who sells his soul to the devil (Doctor Faustus), Ben Jonson’s boisterous account of low life at a fair (Bartholomew Fair), John Webster’s ground-breaking female tragic heroes (The Duchess of Malfi and The White Devil), Thomas Middleton’s satire on sex and money (A Chaste Maid in Cheapside), and several other dramas remarkable for their diversity of theme and character development. Informal responses, oral presentation, annotated bibliography of eight items, and critical/research paper of 5000 words.  Text: English Renaissance Drama: A Norton Anthology. Ed. David Bevington.
