CWB212 Shakespeare, Expert Communicator

The unit aims to provide you with an introduction to Shakespeare's plays and to acquaint you with the burgeoning Shakespeare industry: that is, the myriad appropriations of Shakespearean works that are markers of social, political or cultural change and have become, themselves, the subject of critical inquiry. A knowledge of Shakespeare's plays and the contemporary Shakespearean 'industry' is important to a range of disciplines including Education, Media/Communication, Drama/Theatre Studies and Creative Writing. The study of Shakespearean works also assists in the development of general literary and critical skills.
