ENGL 1700 Introduction to Shakespeare

This course introduces several of William Shakespeare’s plays, including comedies, tragedies, and histories. Students will become familiar with Shakespeare’s dramatic language, often by reading aloud, acting short scenes, or offering creative responses. We will also explore how filmmakers have adapted Shakespeare’s dramas for the screen. No previous experience with Shakespeare is expected: all students at CU are welcome!
