FALL 2019 FEATURED SEMINAR:

GRBK 2400. Great Books of the Middle Ages and Renaissance
"The Classics from Homer to Dante"

Prof. David Wilson-Okamura, Department of English
GE:HU (81246) MWF 10:00-10:50.  B B305

Renaissance means rebirth: specifically, the rebirth of Classical learning. This course features two of the most influential Classics, Homer and Virgil, together with the greatest author of the Middle Ages (some say of all time), Dante. Together they form an encyclopedia of Classical stories, characters, and symbols. More than that, they will give you images and ideas to think with for the rest of your life.

  • Homer. Odyssey
  • Virgil. Aeneid
  • Dante. Divine Comedy: Inferno, Purgatorio, Paradiso
