la asignatura SHAKESPEARE
BREVE DESCRIPCION DEL CONTENIDO:
A study of William Shakespeare's poetry and drama with a special emphasis on the texts' aesthetic conventions, on the political and sexual ideology of their age, and on their present-day cultural relevance.
This course will build on the students' previous acquaintance with Shakespeare's work in order to provide a more advanced approach. The course will include a specific cultural contextualization to the Elizabethan and Jacobean period, but the main emphasis will fall on the students' development of reading strategies applied to specific texts, leading to a deeper understanding of Shakespeare's language and of the world represented in his works. Ideological representations in/of Shakespeare's works will be emphasised, with a special focus on the characters' social and sexual identities. These ideological aspects will be studied as they relate to two main formal issues:
a) Shakespearean dramatic and literary conventions: issues of literary genre, metatheatrical dimensions of the texts, etc.
b) Linguistic creativity, in particular the figurative use of language.

PROGRAMA DE PRACTICAS ASISTENCIALES:
Practical sessions of textual analysis on each of the works, focusing on the students' analysis of previously selected passages. Some of the main films based on those works included in the programme will also be analysed. Students are required to have their own copies of the texts and bring them to class.
PROGRAMA DE ACTIVIDADES ACADÉMICAS DIRIGIDAS:
Students are required to read the works by Shakespeare specified in the programme as well as secondary bibliography (literary history, criticism) on the writer and his age. They should also view a series of film adaptations of the dramatic works.
The final examination will evaluate the student's command of the theoretical aspects of the programme. This examination will include a number of specific questions on Shakespeare and his age, and an essay on some of the issues related to the programme.
Créditos prácticos (incluidas actividades académicas dirigidas):
The students' critical and linguistic abilities will be evaluated during their active participation in the practical sessions as well as in the final examination. In the examination, students will be required to translate and comment a text from one of the readings. If they wish, they may also work on a scholarly paper or project which will contribute to the final mark.
