Course Description

This course examines ancient and modern texts from a variety of cultures. Considering a relatively small number of texts and stressing in-depth reading, the course concentrates on the interrelationships of literary works and the social and cultural values and beliefs reflected in and affected by those works. Some attention is given to the terminology basic to literary study, to the differences between reading for comprehension and reading for pleasure, and to the place of literature in a well-rounded education. The course is designed for students without prior coursework in literature.

Prerequisite: COSK1220 (CO120)
