Course Description and Goals G&RC 3001 / English 2014 is designed first and foremost to give you an overview of the most popular and influential stories of gods and heroes from the ancient Greek and Roman worlds. These stories lay at the foundations of much of Western literature and Western culture, and are present in certain respects in our lives today. The myths of the Greeks and Romans will be studied here with special attention to the contexts in which the stories of gods and heroes were told. We pay special attention to genre, historical context, author, and audience in examining how the myths define and are defined by the culture in which they are told and retold. At the end of the course, you will have gained knowledge of many of the classic mythic stories from the ancient world, and you will have encountered the challenges, difficulties, and rewards, of trying to interpret these stories in meaningful ways.
