ANCS 204  Masterpieces of Ancient Literature (AH or               3 credits
          C)                                                
A study of the classical and/or Judeo-Christian traditions in Western literature and, in some cases, their relationship to the writings of the Old Testament. Readings will come primarily from the great works of Greek and Latin literature, but also from works which have found their inspiration in those texts or represent themes which they contain in common with those texts. For example, Aeschylus' Oresteia can be read alongside Eugene O'Neill's Mourning Becomes Electra and Arthur Miller's All My Sons; Sappho's poetry can be appreciated in light of Cole Porter lyrics; and Sophocles' masterwork Oedipus Tyrannus finds its like in Ola Rotimi's The Gods Are Not to Blame.
