EN 240 Modern Theater and Drama (Spring: 3)

Cross Listed with CT365
This upper-level theatre studies course traces the development of modern European drama from Ibsen to Beckett, or roughly speaking, from 1875 to 1975. Other major dramatists to be studied include Strindberg, Chekhov, Shaw, Pirandello, Brecht, Genet, and Ionesco. The various movements within modernism -- naturalism, symbolism, expressionism, futurism, and surrealism -- are also examined. Students are expected to read one or two plays a week, write two substantial papers, and take a comprehensive exam.
