Biblical and Classical Background to English Literature
English literature has been profoundly influenced by the language, genres, narrative patterns and imagery of Biblical and classical writing. This course surveys a number of the most important works of these two traditions, including The Odyssey (Homer), The Aeneid (Virgil), and various readings from the Hebrew Scriptures and New Testament. It also explores how themes and forms from these works have been taken up in literature in other time periods. This course is loosely structured around the human concerns of home, belonging, and exile that emerge across time, from the ancients to the twentieth-century.
