This course is a survey of theatre and drama from the Greeks to the Renaissance, with the focus on the major periods of western theatre and dramatic literature: Greek, Roman, Medieval, Elizabethan; and Italian, French, and English Neo-classical. We will also survey Eastern classical theatre and drama with a particular emphasis on the Sanskrit theatre, the Chinese theatre, and the classical theatre of Japan, including Kabuki, Noh, and the puppet theatre. Plays are placed in their historical context with particular attention paid to theatrical styles of production.
