This class was tough.
I would recommend this course for those who are interested in ancient literature, such as the Homeric epics. However, I would not recommend this particular teacher because he tends to mumble and trail off and the class is exclusively lecture-like discussion. He also gives a lot of work (from separate texts) at one time.
In this class, you will learn the basic aspects of every text. This includes the primary themes of The Iliad, The Odyssey ,Antigone, The Gita, etc. as well as the main characters and the importance of religion in each text.

Advice for students:
With this particular teacher, you need to be very concise with your response/research papers and pay attention to every meticulous detail of the text (such as who said what, what certain terms mean, and what the footnotes are telling you.)
