ENGL3651 - Christopher Marlowe

Semester 2, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Liam Eagle Semler

Description

Christopher Marlowe was a radically creative, dramatic and poetic genius. This unit of study is a collaborative pursuit of Marlowe via the interplay of four resources: his texts, our creativity, academic scholarship and educational theory (how humans learn and change). These resources will be used to explore Marlowe's poetics, radicalism and dramaturgy, and to contextualise his work in his own time and the present.
