ENG-308 Rival Playwrights: Marlowe, Shakespeare, Johnson

This course will study the three most influential dramatists of the Elizabethan and Jacobean theater, each of whom responded complexly to the example of his predecessor. In addition to reading some of the plays and poems by each man that respond to, or elicit response from, one of the others, we will also consider the social, theatrical, and literary milieu which made such a convergence of talent possible.(Literature Seminars) Prerequisites: 200-level Introduction to Literary Studies course (any version).
