Course Description

This course will explore the varied ways in which poets and short story writers use classical myth to enrich their writing. We will look at poems and short stories from many centuries written by English authors or written by European authors and translated into English. I will tell the story of each myth and show how some painters and sculptors have interpreted the myth, and then we will look at the written versions, including reading aloud some shorter selections. If you have favorite poems or short stories based on myth, please feel free to suggest we read them.   Facilitated Discussion
