Course Spotlight: Shakespeare & Rome

ENG328_Shakespeare and Rome

This course fulfills the Research-Intensive requirement for English majors.

A study of Shakespeare’s career-long engagement with Roman literature, mythology, and history. As a research-intensive course, we will use both primary source archives and recent criticism to consider Rome as not only a source for Shakespeare’s poetic and dramatic writing, but also a unique experiment in defining the success of English literature at the turn of the seventeenth century. Activities include visits to Special
Collections, curating a digital exhibit of images from books that are more than four centuries old, analyzing the film history of Shakespeare’s Rome, and a group-oriented approach to research methods.
