Primary Reading

It is essential for all students to bring copies of the week's readings (book, hardcopy printout, or laptop/e-reader; NOT mobile phone copy) to seminar.

All of the module texts have been notified to Warwick Library; over the summer (2020) every endeavour will be made to place e-copies of these playtexts in the library.


1. Many of the plays studied in this module come in several editions. Here are recommended texts with links to purchase new or second-hand (listed alphabetically by author):


2. Some of the plays are out of copyright and can be accessed for free:


3. Your tutor will distribute the following readings, which are more difficult to track down (listed as they appear):
