 Fall 2018


 

English 4231: Chekhov and Company

Instructor:  Dr. Karen Bamford
 T/Th. 2:30-3:50

This intensive upper-level course examines the dramatic work of the great Russian playwright Anton Chekhov (1860-1904), and its profound influence on the twentieth-century stage.  We begin with a study of Chekhov's four major plays-- The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters, and The Cherry Orchard -and then read a variety of international scripts that respond to or adapt Chekhov's.  Authors studied include G.B. Shaw (1856-1950) and Brian Friel (1929-2015); as well as London-based Tom Stoppard (b. 1937) and Timberlake Wertenbaker (b.1956).

Previous courses in dramatic literature are an asset, but not necessary.
Students need primarily a willingness to read, think and talk about the texts.

For more information or permission to register, contact Karen Bamford ( kbamford@mta.ca ).

We will focus on fiction and poetry, primarily from the contemporary period. The emphasis will be on open
and honest seminar-style discussions of our close readings. If you have questions
