Students will learn how to read and discuss Shakespeare critically and analytically.
How are men and women portrayed in Shakespeare's drama? Are his concepts of "masculinity" and "femininity" different from our own? This course attempts to address these questions by a close reading of Twelfth Night. Attention will also be paid to film versions of the play.
