This course will introduce you to some of the world’s greatest literary works, from the beginnings to the 17th century.  You’ll gain a basic understanding of different genres and themes pertinent to the study of literature, and you’ll develop an appreciation for the cultures that produced our assigned texts.  Quizzes and exams will assess everything from your ability to recall simple details to your capacity for complex analysis of themes across multiple works.   And the exercises and writing assignments will help you develop your skills as researchers and close readers who understand the significance of context and detail to meaning.
