Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course provides a historical survey of the Tudor and Stuart reigns and looks at the roles played by religion, the voyages of discovery and the cult of Queen Elizabeth. A brief outline of the Elizabethan world picture as presented by Tillyard will be the starting point for dealing with more recent literary theories like New Historicism. The discussion of the literature includes the four major genres, starting with 16th century prose fiction and the epic. Poetry will mainly be discussed in terms of the development and analysis of the sonnet, but will also include poems by the Metaphysical Poets. The development of drama will be traced from its medieval origins to the closing of the theatres by the Puritans. The main focus will be on plays by Marlowe and Shakespeare in the context of playhouses, acting companies and audiences in Elizabethan London.
Aims: knowledge of the literature and culture in early modern England, familiarity with Renaissance literary genres, with Shakespearean drama and the early modern stage, with New Historicism
Methods: lecture, eLearning, audio-presentation of poems, video clips, exemplary analysis of individual texts
