Compulsory Readings:

At the beginning of the course a copy of the compulsory readings listed in the contents above will be at disposal of the students (in Reprography, in Moodle, or in class), with the exception of Hamlet by Shakespeare --the only full-length text in the list.

A link to an online version of Hamlet will also be provided via Moodle, but students are encouraged to get a printed / electronic version for their own personal use. It must be an original and complete version, in any one of the academic editions (ex., Oxford University Press, Penguin, Longman, Cambridge UP, among others). 

A bilingual edition of these readings may be used to facilitate reading comprehension, but any reference to the works in oral and written discussions must be made to the English version.
