ENG/THR 250 Introduction to Classical Theatre 4cr

This course, which surveys Western drama from the ancient Greeks through the eighteenth century, focuses on character, dialogue, plot, symbolism, language, and other aspects of dramatic literature. We also consider drama in its historical, religious, and political contexts, and some consideration will be given to dramatic theory, dramatic innovation, and the modern performance of classical plays. Students are encouraged, but not required, to perform a scene from one of the plays we read.
