Survey of Drama: Reading Like a Director
A course in five acts, ENG 260 introduces students to drama from classical Greek theatre to the present. Beginning with Aristotle's Poetics, students practice close textual analysis, participate in class readings, and view film versions of specific scenes. Students analyze the ways dramatic literature as a storytelling and cultural tradition is shaped by conventions such as genre, structure, and character. Reading Like a Director prepares students to critically interpret texts for dramatic performance.
