Myth and Literature
From classical poetry to video games, stories follow recognizable patterns that tell us much about our values, fears, and desires. Offering a fertile source for plots and themes, myth systems present a set of limits to be investigated, challenged, and rewritten. This course examines how plays, poems, novels, and/or other texts engage with myth. Topics may include such diverse ideas as masculinity, initiation, fellowship, betrayal, rebirth, exile and homecoming.
