From Odysseus to Harry Potter - registration

This six-week seminar will trace how patterns established in classical literature, particularly in The Odyssey, have been revived and modified by modern writers. The course will look at ancient and modern authors, such as Homer, Willa Cather, and J. K. Rowling, and films, such as All Quiet on the Western Front and Shane, to examine how they envision forms of heroism.
