CPLT 3410 - History of Drama II: Ibsen to the Present

This is the second of a two-semester survey of the history of Western drama from the fifth century B.C. to the present. This semester we will trace the development of drama from the emergence of realism to the present. This is a turbulent, vibrant period in the history of drama, rivaled only by that of the Greeks and the Elizabethans. We will study realism and the reactions against it: expressionism, surrealism, Epic Theater, Absurdism.
