ENGL 203 - W09 Classical Hero, Epic, & Film M - W - - - - 1335 - 1510 OEC 313
CRN: 22170 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Lorina N. Quartarone This course focuses on analyzing and understanding Classical epic poetry, the ancient presentation of heroic figures and heroic exploits, and recognizing the influence of epic/heroic literature on the modern storytelling device of film. While the genre of epic is central to the course, other genres (both literary and cinematic) which present heroic figures, e.g., tragedy, history, comedy, action, fantasy, will also be explored. Analyzing the works read or viewed via writing and class discussion will constitute the primary course activities. In order to allow ample time for discussion and analysis, the majority of films in their entirety will be viewed outside of class. The minimum writing load for this course is 15 pages of formal revised writing. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement.

ENGL 220 - L01 The Classical Tradition M - W - - - - 1335 - 1510 SCB 205
CRN: 42472 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Lorina N. Quartarone What might it mean to speak of “the classical tradition?” What does that include and exclude? And how does it matter to us today? From the ancient Greek gods in their serenity to the howls of the damned in Dante’s vision of the afterlife, whether mythological or theological, the works to be studied engage us in the most fundamental questions about what it means to be human. Such questions will be explored in a chronological framework through extensive readings of representative texts of Western literature in translation from ancient Greece to the Renaissance, including some interactions of the European traditions with ancient or medieval Asian, Mesopotamian, or Middle Eastern literatures. Authors may include Homer, Aeschylus, Sappho, Virgil, Dante, Rumi, Marie de France, and Christine de Pizan. This course fulfills the Historical Perspectives requirement in the English major. Prerequisites: ENGL 201, 202, 203, or 204.
