The English Drama to 1700

Back to "Spring 2018" courses

A study of English drama from its medieval origins to Restoration comedy, with special attention to major playwrights of the Renaissance (Christopher Marlowe, Ben Jonson, Thomas Middleton, John Webster, John Ford) and the Restoration (William Wycherley, Aphra Behn, Mary Pix). We’ll study the theatrical and political conditions that gave rise to this body of dramatic literature and its characteristic thematic obsessions (gender, sexuality, money, power, revenge, magic, wit and theatricality itself), as well as the ways in which the plays are performed today.
