Under this menu, you will find three sublinks to student-generated document analyses of three sources available for direct comparison. For this assignment, students will analyze the aesthetics of the title pages, dedications, and first pages of each work.
Although we will undertake much close reading in this class, this assignment offers students their first opportunity to compare digital v. in situ archival research practices.
Students will analyze the following three documents:
Christopher Marlowe: Tamburlaine (1605)
Thomas Nashe: Summer’s Last Will and Testament (1600)
William Shakespeare: Muche Adoe About Nothing (1605)
