    La Recepcin Crtica del Teatro de Shakespeare(Grado en Estudios Ingleses, First Semester, 5European Credit Transfer System, i.e. ECTS, Optional Subject) is mainly addressed to those students who

    are interested in the works of William Shakespeare and in Literary Theory applied to Shakespearean Studies.It offers, first, an overview of the main critical approaches to Shakespeares work from the seventeenthcentury to the end of the twentieth century, and, secondly, a detailed analysis of two of the playwrights mostimportant tragedies: HamletandMacbeth.

    The whole structure of the subject is based on the different sections of the required textbook: CriticalApproaches to Shakespeare: Shakespeare for All Time. The textbook is divided into two main parts:

    UNIT 1 presents critical approaches to Shakespeare from the seventeenth century to the firsthalf of the twentieth century.

    UNIT 2 focuses on Shakespearean critical studies of the second half of the twentieth century.Both units deal with the principal critical lines of study of Shakespeares literary production. Thestudent is provided with a panorama of the evolution of critical ideas about Shakespeares worksthroughout history. After describing the main tenets of each critical school and their mainrepresentatives, a section called Selection of Texts is included. This section presents criticalfragments about some key Shakespearean plays, and ocassionally a sonnet, written by the mostinfluential critics of each theoretical approach. It presents a selection of the most important criticalconcepts of each fragment and their application to Shakespeares production. These criticalfragments deal with plays that the students have already read or studied for the course Ejes de la

    Literatura Inglesa Medieval y Renacentista Inglesa (Grado en Estudios Ingleses, First YearCompulsory Subject, 10 European Credit Transfer System or ECTS).

    II.THESHAKESPEAREANSTAGE:HAMLETANDMACBETH.

    is no longer required for the subject Comentario de Textos Literarios en Lengua Inglesa, First YearCourse, Grado en Estudios Ingleses as from the 2014-2015 academic course. However, it is useful forthis subject, RCTS, as it includes examples of readings from some of the critical points of view dealt within the handbook. If you took CTLLI before the present academic year and still have the book, you willindeed find its information on the critical schools and its discussions of King Learfrom different points ofview quite illuminating and helpful in your work with HamletandMacbeth.

    The following dictionaries specialised in Shakespeares English are also recommended. Thesedictionaries are especially useful to solve the comprehension problems derived from the changes in theevolution of the English language. Some words and expressions used by Shakespeare have nowdifferent meanings and may be problematic when discussing a specific part of the text. The criticalapparatus of the recommended critical editions solve many of these problems, but it is always useful tohave other reference materials:

    CRYSTAL, David and Ben CRYSTAL 2002. Shakespeares Words. A Glossary and LanguageCompanion. With a Preface by Stanley Wells. London: Penguin.

    ONIONS, C. T. 1989 (1986).A Shakespeare Glossary.Enlarged and revised throughout by Robert D.Eagleson. Oxford: Oxford University Press, rptd.

    Partridges dictionary on Shakespeares sexual and scatological language is also recommended.This will help students understand bawdy puns and allusions that they would otherwise miss whenreading the text:

    PARTRIDGE, Eric 2002 (1968) (1947). Shakespeares Bawdy. With a Preface by Stanley Wells.Routledge Classics.London: Routledge, 3rded., rptd.

    4. Extended List of Text Resources

    This is intended only for students willing to go into central aspects of the subject for future postgraduateresearch. The information provided by the books listed below is not necessary in order to obtain fullmarks (10) in this subject course, but it is recommended as a basic reading list to all those students whoplan to study a Master and focus on Renaissance drama and Shakespeare studies.
