Expanded Course Description
Students in ENG 207 read, discuss, and critique Shakespeare's major comedies and tragedies, covering the early plays through Hamlet. Plays may include, but are not limited to, A Mid-Summer Night's Dream, The Merchant of Venice, Henry IV (Part One), Richard II, Henry V, Julius Caesar, and Hamlet. Weekly readings and occasional screenings of plays demand a considerable investment of time and effort, in addition to which students will be asked to compose critical essays of varying length, totaling at least 8-10 pages. Both Shakespeare courses, ENG 207 and 208, introduce students to central questions in the study of dramatic art, as well as to issues pertaining more broadly to the study of literature in English. Students will leave these courses having read extensively from the works of one of the major writers of the western tradition, and they will have acquired interpretive, analytical, and communication skills that will aid them in their future coursework in English and other disciplines. ENG 207 satisfies the university's Group Requirement in the Arts and Letters category. ENG 207 and 208 may be taken as a chronological sequence or individually.
