ENG 220 The World of Drama

3 Credits

The World of Drama is designed to make students conversant with dramatic structures for several significant periods in literary history, and to nurture a lifelong appreciation for this genre. Drama blends narrative text with performative arts. Plays are intended to be performed in theatrical productions, and often they are adapted to film. Students will read and analyze select plays that were written and performed at different times-from ancient Greece to the 21st century. Through close analysis of characters’ dialogue, action in the plot, setting that is both historic and sociocultural, students will consider a range to conflict that complicates characters’ lives, yet allows students to consider their values in relation to those portrayed in the drama. For several plays, students will analyze a film adaptation. 

Prerequisite(s): ENG 101  (with a minimum grade of C) or placement into ENG 102 .
