THR 503 Theater History 1

Course Description: An exploration of the historical development of the artists, literature and craft of the theater, beginning with Greek and Roman theater, and proceeding in the first semester to the European playwrights of the seventeenth century. In sharp contrast to the other classes in the First Year, these classes focus not on the performance of dramatic art, but on its historical development both as literature and craft.
