English

Students will learn to…

  • familiarise themselves with theatrical traditions;
  • understand and describe developments in Anglophone drama over the last 400 years;
  • practise and master forms of literary analysis with a special focus on drama
  • be able to place and interpret a text in its historical context.

As we will discover in the course of this lecture, drama writing in English has a long and exceptionally productive history. We will aim to trace these developments and connect them with the historical background as well as theatrical conventions of a particular time. Beginning with the origins of dramatic expressions this lecture will attempt to discover the traditions leading to the golden age of theatre during the Renaissance, and Shakespeare’s ‘Wooden O’, all the way to the 21st century.
