ENG 210 - Myth, Fantasy, and the Imagination


Prerequisites: WTNG 102 
Requirement Fulfillment: Fulfills a course requirement in the English Literature Core Concentration
Students begin by identifying archetypes, including the heroic ideal, found in folk tales and fairy tales from around the world. Students investigate how and why many of the same universal concerns inform and are interpreted by the famous epic narratives the ancients called “Wisdom Literature;” the Iliad and the Odyssey; and classical mythology. The other readings may include Tolkien’s The Hobbit or portions of The Lord of the Rings, the ancient Mesopotamian The Epic of Gilgamesh, or Virgil’s Aeneid.
