CLT 3370-01: Introduction to Classical Mythology LSB 002 MWF 9:05-9:55 Instructor: Kyle Jazwa Office: 205R Dodd Hall Office Hours: Monday 1-2 PM; Friday 9:55-10:55 AM; and happily by appointment Email: [email protected] Course Description: This course is intended to acquaint students with the major myths of the Greco-Roman world. Knowledge of these stories is indispensible for anyone who wishes to study the literature and art of ancient Greece and Rome. These myths figure prominently in the corpus of the western artistic heritage and frequently provide the thematic basis of much of the western world’s literature and art. Not only do these myths allow us to understand Greco-Roman culture and our own literature better, they are great stories in themselves. Because this course relies upon the extant literary tradition of Ancient Greece and Rome, primary sources [epic, drama, poetry etc.] will provide the predominant textual foundation for the class. Intensive analysis and comparison of all the assigned readings is essential for satisfactory completion of the class and its assignments. Required Books: M.P.O. Morford, R.J. Lenardon, Classical Mythology , 8 th ed. ISBN 978-0-19-530805-1 D. Grene, R. Lattimore, Greek Tragedies , vol. 1. ISBN 0-226-30790-5 S. Lombardo, tr., Homer, Odyssey .
