Spring 2014 Information: 

This course offers a broad survey of literary world masterpieces ranging from ancient creation myths to the metaphysical poetry of the 17th century.  Our starting premise is that literature teaches us to learn about ourselves by exposing us to the concerns of "common humanity."  Hence, our goal will be to see if we can find answers to the problems of our own time by looking into the great texts of the distant past.  We will also investigate how different genres—drama, poetry, fables, folk tales, and myth—help us to better understand the world by offering different ways of narrating it.
