General Catalog:

Ancient Greek and Roman myths, their interpretation by Western civilization; emphasis on flexibility of myth and its importance for art, literature, anthropological, psychological studies.

Description:

Mythology provides a way of thinking about the world that helps provide answers to many fundamental questions that all cultures ask themselves. While these questions may be universal, the answers they provide tell us a lot about the concerns and values of the culture that produced them. This course will examine the stories of gods and legendary heroes that were told in ancient Greece and Rome. The central aims of the course will be to study these myths in their various literary forms, such as epic and drama. We will look at these myths not simply as "ingredients" of ancient culture, but as important vehicles used by the Greeks and Romans to explain themselves to themselves.
