ENG 230 - World Literature II

This course covers medieval and early modern texts from  South-West Asia and Continental Europe: The Thousand and One Nights  from the Middle East; The Song of Roland and Chretien de Troyes’s Arthurian Romances from France; Dante’s Inferno, Petrarch’s sonnets, and Boccaccio’s Decameron from Italy; and Cervantes’s Don Quixote from Spain. We will explore how cultures located close to each other in terms of both geography and historical period can nevertheless produce very different worldviews, but also how texts produced in one part of the world may influence those produced in  another.  All texts will be read in translation.
