Despite the growth in the literary canon over the last few decades, Shakespeare remains at the center of English literary study. His works have been read, reread, used, and manipulated in a multitude of ways over the course of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Yet, Shakespeare's popularity has also led to great scrutiny about the value or danger of "great man" narratives. This class will take seriously this question of authority and authorship by studying a selection of Shakespeare's poetry with attention to source history and the context of material production. In particular, it will ask students to defend their understanding of the limits of Shakespeare's canonical status. Students will learn how the larger social, political, and historical environment of England and how changing cultural values affect the texts that we examine, the questions we ask, and the very creation of meaning today.
