This course examines how select works from Shakespeare's corpus adapted works by his predecessors and contemporaries, how they were revised in print during his lifetime, and how they were revised and adapted by his successors on the stage, page, and screen. Through guided exercises and short papers on topics such as textual criticism, formalism, historicism, intertextuality, and genre, students will learn crucial tools, methods, and concepts of literary analysis.
