|Repeated course from the Spring. Discussion of three ancient writings reflecting the worlds that helped shape ours. Get ready for adventure, monsters, goddesses, preternatural powers, and heroic caritas (love for all). Gilgamesh: defining the hero, setting the task. Beowulf: battling the enemy or threat, demonstration of the hero's strength(s). Odyssey: return of the hero to the community, place of the hero in the community. What epic qualities, if any, do we require in our heroes today? Why do we still read the ancient epics? Does the definition of the hero shift from one poem to another? Why or why not? Size Limit: 25|
