ENG 201 - World Literature I

Prerequisite: ENG 101 ENG 101E , or ENG 101P .  
(3 Credits)
Four thousand years ago, Mesopotamians drew wedges in clay tablets to tell stories of their triumphs, needs, fears, passions and joys. We find striking similarities between our human journeys and theirs. We will explore samplings from Mesopotamia, Greece, Asia, Africa, Italy, Arabia, and Spain, from the ancient world to 1650 C.E. We feel the breadth of the human journey as we study the historical context of each piece; we feel its depth as we re-experience ourselves through these ancient lives. * Arts/Humanities Approved General Education Course.  Total of 45 hours of lecture.

Semesters Offered: Spring Only, Even Years.
