Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course starts with a brief survey of the historical and cultural contexts of Renaissance English literature. The discussion of the literature includes the four major genres of prose fiction, epic, poetry, and drama. The latter's development will be traced from its medieval origins to the closing of the theatres in 1642, with a focus on plays by Marlowe and Shakespeare. Playhouses, performing conditions, acting companies and audiences in Elizabethan and Jacobean London will also be looked at in this context.
Aims: understanding the basic concepts of early modern English literature and culture; being familiar with Renaissance literary genres, in particular Shakespearean drama, and with the early modern stage; being able to analyse early modern literary texts
Methods: lecture, eLearning, audio-presentation of poems, film clips, exemplary analysis of individual texts
