The Spring 2015 section of Drama 201B will examine a variety of non-Shakespearean Early Modern/Renaissance English texts in order for students to be introduced to and become familiar with the process of formal script analysis of plot, character, and style. Assignments include reading of plays, periodic written responses, mid-term and final exams, one formal paper and a final project where students will apply their script analysis in a practical form.
Texts include (provisionally): Everyman (anon.); The Spanish Tragedy (Kyd); The Old Wife's Tale (Peele); Doctor Faustus (Marlowe); Arden of Feversham (anon.); A Warning for Fair Women (anon.); The Witch of Edmonton (Dekker et al.); and 'Tis Pity She's a Whore (Ford).
