ENG 201 - Shakespeare

4 Credit(s)

One scholar suggests that Shakespeare's works "remain the outward limit of human achievement"; they fascinate us because we "cannot catch up to them." Nevertheless, we will have fun running after them. This survey explores the works of Shakespeare, covering 3-5 plays and at least one sonnet each term. Instructors might divide the plays by theme, genre, or chronology. ENG 201 may include Romeo and Juliet.
