ENG 291 Mythology

Prerequisite: ENG 102  
3 credits

Myth means a story and this course will chart how mythic stories have been told through ancient sources: epics, drama, short prose and recorded oral tradition. Moreover, modern manifestations of myth and mythic symbols in film, literature and popular culture will be connected to the ancient texts to demonstrate the commonality and diversity found across cultures and time. Discussion of myth as theology, cosmology and psychological/social phenomena will augment the treatment of myth as provocative and substantial literature.
