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.

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.
