Abstract: Murder! Incest! Hypocrisy! Thievery! Political intrigue! Thwarted love! Early modern playgoers had an insatiable appetite for drama, and they liked their meat strong. Despite often-admirable body-counts, Shakespeare’s plays can seem milquetoast by comparison. In this course we’ll read some of the most famous and influential plays of the period by dramatists who weren’t born in Stratford-upon-Avon: Thomas Kyd, Christopher Marlowe, Ben Jonson, John Webster, John Ford, Thomas Middleton, and more; and we'll try to grasp the unique theatre and literary culture we now associate overmuch with a single genius.
