Subject:        Summer Session Syllabus

Hi-

I'm teaching an Intro. to Shakespeare course (for non-majors) this
summer;  I have time to cover five plays.  I'd like to teach a comedy,
history, tragedy, dark comedy / tragicomedy / problem play and a
romance; in addition to exposing students to the various genres and
thinking about the artificiality of the labels we affix to these plays,
  I'd also like the students to get a sense of the diversity in
Shakespeare's style over his career (prose / verse mixtures, longer,
looser pentameter lines, etc.-a la Russ McDonald's Shakespeare and the
Arts of Language or John Porter Houston's Shakespearean Sentences).
I'm thinking of assigning Love's Labors Lost, 1H4, Lear, Measure for
Measure and The Tempest.  Any suggestions / alternatives?

Thank you,
Joe Canzoneri
