Graduate Course Descriptions
Summer I 2012
The Bible as/in Literature
Using the new Norton Critical Edition of the King James version, we will analyze selected passages from the Old and New Testaments in terms of their original contexts, their literary qualities, and their relationship to selected later works of literature that have been influenced by them. For example, we might consider the story of Noah’s Flood in Genesis on its own terms (its merging of two different sources, its use of symbolism, its “lesson”) and then consider how Chaucer appropriates it for the bawdy shenanigans in “The Miller’s Tale.” Undergraduate requirements: informal responses, midterm exam, oral presentation, critical paper of at least 2000 words, final exam. Graduate requirements: informal responses, oral presentation, annotated bibliography of at least eight items, critical/research paper of 4500-5000 words
