Shakespeare's works are so well known and venerated that he has been positioned as the greatest playwright, not only of the English Renaissance, but also of the traditional English canon.
The centrality of Shakespeare has meant that other early modern playwrights and their works have often been marginalized and ignored. In this course we will switch the focus away from Shakespeare and examine a small selection of plays written by Shakespeare's Peeps, his contemporaries and those who wrote soon after his death in Through critical and primary readings, class discussion, and written essays, we will address issues of gender, race, class, and cultural politics including the Protestant Revolution, succession, colonialism, the witch-craze, etc.

What is a legend, and what separates a legend from a distortion or lie? When if ever is it acceptable to change or embellish a life story for the greater personal, social, artistic or political good? In this course, we will attempt to answer these questions with regard to legendary figures, and to apply them to considerations of authorship.
Can an author become a legend in the same manner as a political or military figure? Does this type of legend fulfill the same social and cultural needs as other types? Or are there different motivations for the stories we tell about story-tellers?
We will begin by comparing historical accounts of a variety of biographies with their distorted legendary counterparts and creating journal entries which reflect our perceptions of the differences between the two and the potential reasons for those differences.
Through revision, editing, peer workshops, self-assessments and class discussions, these reactions will be developed into several short papers. One longer, final research paper will consider the history of biographical representation of an authorial figure.

What makes the road trip quintessentially American? We will engage these questions through class discussion, informal writing exercises, several short papers and a longer research paper. Like a traveler, a successful writer must be gutsy and willing to follow new, unfamiliar routes.
