The course focuses on early modern English literatures/cultures and contemporary cultural/visual theories. We will read works of fiction, prose, and plays by Thomas More, Thomas Wyatt, Edmund Spenser, Robert Burton, George Herbert, William Shakespeare, and John Milton. Several segments of the course focus on the re-construction and re-presentation of the human body - including a critical investigation of anatomy as a visual concept (the Icarian/cartographic gaze), and how early cartographic practice reveals a striking iconic correlation between maps and the (female) body (Robert Burton). Specific seminars will also explore how the acts of creating/writing are themselves devices for fashioning the body and identity (Wyatt), positioning the self within a social and religious order as well as defining the otherness of gender (Shakespeare). Undertaking close readings of specific renaissance/early modern texts as well as visual artefacts such as films and paintings, the course provides a unique insight into 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.

PR: Grade of C (2.0) or better required in ENG 3014

We will read plays and a narrative poem from Shakespeare's career as chief dramatist for The Lord Chamberlain's Men and, later, The King's Men. Our class discussion will involve close analysis of Shakespeare's language, his culture, and the various moral, political, and aesthetic issues raised in the plays and poetry. We will favor a thematic over chronological order or reading so that we can build on our progressive examination of king and kinship, gender, love, friendship and reciprocal obligation; also, in relation to these issues, we'll examine domestic and political tyranny--and or course, revenge and moral redemption. This subject is also at the junction of Literature and Cinema as well as other art forms such as paintings of the Renaissance period. The course has as its aim to offer an innovative interdisciplinary analysis of Shakespeare as well as an overview of current philosophical approaches. Finally, the course argues for the critical importance of thinking Shakespeare now. We will therefore consider what Shakespeare has to offer now and in the future and how our past still informs our present and vice versa. Plays will be supplemented by readings in Shakespearean criticism and in contemporary theory.

PR: Graduate standing in English

Course Description:
“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 artifacts 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.

Plays include specifically Richard II, Richard III, King Lear, Hamlet, Macbeth, Othello, The Merchant of Venice, and Romeo and Juliet, supplemented by readings on Shakespearean criticism and contemporary theory.

(Gleyzon)

PR: Grade of C (2.0) or better required in ENG 3014

This course introduces you to the authors, forms, and major themes that vitalize English Renaissance poetry and prose. Our readings will mainly be focused on themes designed to provide us with ingress into the poetry and prose, culture and historical vitality of the period--"truth", "love", "gender", "revolution and class", "engendering the city". We will be reading cross-sections from works by many authors to explore these themes from as many angles as possible. We will explore the similarities, the lines of consensus, of shared languages and beliefs, between the different writers, but we will also be keen to observe and analyze.

"Did Women have a Renaissance?" (J. Kelly-Gadol) Stereotypically, described or objectified as silent, chaste, pious, and obedient, the Renaissance woman encountered many challenges, if not barriers and obstacles, in their search for knowledge and basic artistic literacy skills. Using specific selected texts, the course aims to explore how, first, Renaissance women were portrayed by the male writing class, and second, how some Renaissance women were actively and vocally engaged in writing and publishing in order to re-fashion, interpret and comment on the world around them. The course has as its aim to offer an innovative interdisciplinary analysis of Renaissance women writers as well as an overview of current feminist approaches. Finally, the course argues for the critical importance of thinking Renaissance writers now. We will therefore consider what Renaissance writers have to offer now and in the future, and how our past still informs our present and vice versa.

(Gleyzon)

PR: Grade of C (2.0) or better required in ENG 3014

Who's afraid of John Milton? In posing this question, the course aims to analyze Milton's powerful and decisive influence and impact on the English literary Canon. This course focuses on John Milton's lyric and epic poetry, prose, and letters, with a particular emphasis on his biblical epic, Paradise Lost. Published in 1667, Milton's poem tells the story of Adam and Eve's disobedience, their exile from Eden, and Satan's war against God himself. Written in the aftermath of the English Civil War, Paradise Lost is an epic that explores the themes of free will, gender, obedience and defiance, republicanism, and the nature of good and evil. The seminar aims to facilitate a close reading of Milton's poem and its themes, while introducing seminal critical interpretations and current critical/theoretical debates.

Undertaking close readings of specific Milton's texts as well as visual artifacts such as engravings and paintings, the course provides a unique insight into Milton and Early Modern's 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 Milton now. We will therefore consider what Milton has to offer now (in an age of global cultures) and in the future.
