ENGL 322 - Hamlet in Context

(3 cr) A rereading of the received text of Hamlet in terms of the theatrical, historical, and cultural contexts of Shakespeare's tragic vision. The class will consider the popular tradition of Elizabethan and Jacobean revenge drama, ranging from Kyd's The Spanish Tragedy to Webster's The White Devil and the apparent source materials of the Hamlet story; the political background and the crisis of authority in Tudor England; four centuries of Hamlet criticism, including romantic, idealistic, Freudian, formalist, feminist, pacifist, and complementarian interpretations of the play. Prerequisites: ENGL 301  or permission of instructor.
