English Renaissance Drama (Approaches To Teaching World Literature (Paperback))
Publish Date: 2002-01-01
Many college students are familiar with the works of William Shakespeare but may know little about other playwrights of his era. This volume explores the compelling dramatic techniques and rich language found in a wide variety of both well-known and less-familiar Renaissance plays. A series of reading, performance, and research tools are outlined for teachers who wish to encourage students not only to understand the English Renaissance as a unique period of time but also to envision their own world from a fresh perspective.
