Principal myths found in classical and later literature. Offered: AWSp.
This course will introduce students to what the major myths and mythological figures of ancient Greece and Rome were, how these myths reflected and shaped ancient Greek and Roman culture, and how they have been variously adapted and interpreted over time. Access to these myths will come primarily from the textbook Classical Mythology and lecture material. This course will be reading intensive, with assignments of about 50 pages a class. Thus, keeping pace is essential to success in this class. Although lecture will doubtlessly cover some of the material from the assigned reading, it will serve mostly to plug in gaps and expand on what the book offers. For this reason, lecture is a complement to the readings and neither component is a substitute for the other.
