EN 326 - Modern Irish Drama
 
(3 cr.) This course surveys the development of modern Irish dramas, from W.B. Yeats and the writers of the Gaelic Revival (1884-1916) to more current dramatists such as Tom Murphy and Brian Friel. The material not only covers the powerful body of work produced by Yeats, Synge and Lady Gregory (along with its influence on European and American drama) but also ranges over the work of G.B. Shaw, Brendan Behan, Sean O'Casey and Martin McDonagh. Students also consider modern works of the Irish stage, especially by women (e.g., Elizabeth Kuti) and other voices. Prerequisite: one course from EN level 200; Every Other Year, Fall
