Issues in Literary Study/Visual Shakespeares - LIT6216: “Drama is first and foremost a Visual Art” (Al Pacino, Sight and Sound, 2007). This course explores such issues as the way the visual contests the printed word, or the way it figures class and gender issues, or occupies the spaces of theatricality, fashion, landscape, the marketplace and the production of texts. It examines the process of translating Shakespeare’s language into images, and offers specific ways of both understanding/penetrating and visualizing Shakespeare’s world.  Shakespeare’s stage and concern was indeed The Globe, and central to the goal of this course is the careful scrutiny of Shakespeare’s plays in relation both to early modern visual culture and to modern film versions and their world-wide reception. Undertaking close readings of specific Shakespeare’s texts as well as visual artefacts such as films and paintings, the course provides a unique insight into Shakespeare and Early Modern’s visual culture and helps refashion, re-map broader issues that engage the then emergent status of cultural and religious identity, nation, and individuality. Finally, the course argues for the critical importance of thinking Shakespeare now. We will therefore consider what Shakespeare has to offer now (in an age of visual/global cultures) and in the future.
