This course covers ancient texts from around the world: The Epic of Gilgamesh from south-west Asia; the Ramayana and the Bhagavad-Gita from India; the Greek and Roman epics of Homer and Virgil; the Greek tragedies of Sophocles and Euripides; and the Hebrew Bible. We will be reading texts that show how diverse cultures from the Middle East, South Asia, and Europe have variously attempted to come to an understanding of themselves and their relationships with other peoples and with the natural and spiritual worlds. All texts will be read in translation.
