12:30-1:50pm, TR, Dr. Caroline Bishop
- Fulfills: Communication Literacy Requirement (University)
- Description: Odysseus is one of Western literature's earliest personalities, and he is also one of the most ubiquitous: from Homer to Euripides, Ovid to Shakespeare, Tennyson to the Coen Brothers, almost everyone has had something to say about him. Beginning with Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, we will follow Odysseus through the ages, looking at his portrayal in the tragedies of Sophocles and Euripides, the epics of Vergil and Ovid, medieval poetry and romance, Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida, and modern works by Robert Graves, Margaret Atwood, Gerry Duggan (the graphic novel The Infinite Horizon) and the Coen Brothers' film O Brother, Where Art Thou?. Along the way we will observe Odysseus shift between the roles of respected counselor and evil schemer, bold adventurer and cunning trickster, and discuss how each different Odysseus reflects the values and circumstances of the age that produced him. By the end of the semester, students will have learned what it is about Odysseus that makes him such an enduring figure, and one so intriguing to authors and artists.
