World Literature – Landmark Texts

This course introduces students to texts that have profoundly influenced and continue to shape Western philosophical discourse, religious thought, the visual arts, imaginative literature, and other aspects of culture in places and times far removed from those in which they were originally composed. Assigned texts are selected from a broad range of influential writings that may include the Hebrew scriptures; ancient Greek and/or Roman poetry, drama, and philosophy; foundational Christian and/or Islamic texts; and medieval, Renaissance, and/or modern European literature.
