Prerequisite:ENG100 and a 100 or 200-level literature course
Major tragedies in histories.
This course fulfilled one of my degree requirements. I didn’t particularly enjoy this class, but that was mostly to do with the fact that I have never liked any of Shakespeare’s works. Out of the six or so plays that we read the only one I actually enjoyed was Antony and Cleopatra. I found I liked the character of Cleopatra. I also found that this course was a good way to see how the language has evolved since the time of Shakespeare.
