Early Shakespeare: A Short Course

The resources available from this page provide an introduction to three early plays by Shakespeare: a tragedy, a comedy, and a history. There is also a module that introduces Shakespeare's Sonnets, which were probably written at about the same time as the three plays.

These resources are initially provided for the students who completed the courses on Shakespeare by Individual Studies at UVic; some of the material in these courses in turn was based on two courses written for the Open University of B.C. The materials available here are freely available for educational, non-profit purposes, so long as due credit is given to the author, the University of Victoria, and the Open University of B.C.
