CLGM S3920D. The World Responds to the Greeks. 3 pts./TuTh 9:00 - 12:10p/D. Antoniou

Runs from the week of May 23 to Jul 01

This course examines the way particular spaces - cultural, urban, literary - serve as sites for the production and reproduction of cultural and political imaginaries. It places particular emphasis on the themes of the polis, the city, and the nation-state as well as on spatial representations of and responses to notions of the Hellenic across time. Students will consider a wide range of texts as spaces - complex sites constituted and complicated by a multiplicity of languages - and ask: How central is the classical past in Western imagination? How have great metropolises such as Paris, Istanbul, and New York fashioned themselves in response to the allure of the classical and the advent of modern Greece?

 

Also of Interest

Taught in Fall 2016

The seminar will focus on the close-reading of poems composed in English which take as their contextual points of departure the mythic traditions of ancient Greece and Rome. The poems studied will come from a range of periods and nationalities, as well as a range of mythic contexts, thus allowing us to explore both the kinds of questions raised by classical mythic traditions and also the ways in which such questions can inform and challenge our assumptions about various English poetic traditions. The syllabus will include poems by Sidney, Shakespeare, Milton, Wordsworth, Poe, Millay, Yeats, Moore, Heaney and Carson, among others, as well as excerpts from the works of classical authors from Homer to Ovid. The course will conclude with an extended examination of Derek Walcott's Nobel Prize-winning African-Caribbean/American poem Omeros.
