Hillary J. Fogerty
ENGL 225
Seattle Campus


Survey of Shakespeare's career as dramatist. Study of representative comedies, tragedies, romances, and history plays.

Class Description

For SUMMER 2003: In this course we will examine Shakespeare’s career as a dramatist; importantly this means that in addition to learning how to be astute readers of Shakespeare, we will be focusing on his works as performance texts intended for actors and a stage. We will address the plays not as classics to be revered, but as scripts to be performed. Students will be required to perform in class – in order to do well in this class you must be willing to participate fully and enthusiastically (participation is required, acting talent is not). Students will write papers weekly, there will be both a mid-term and a final, and there will be both individual and group presentations/performances. Though this will be quite a demanding course, I also believe it will be a highly enjoyable one.
