ENG 729 Studies in Classical and Biblical Backgrounds to Literature(GLA)

4 hours; 4 credits. The Biblical and Greco-Roman classical background provides a frame of reference for Western literature from the Middle Ages to the present day. This course examines the content of that background (specific works, forms and narrative) and some works that have imitated, appropriated, or creatively transformed the themes, models, and even specific scenes and passages from that background.
