This course investigates exemplary works of poetry, drama, and prose from ancient Greek and Roman worlds, so as to establish foundational competences in literary study. It satisfies the Foundational requirement of the university's Core Curriculum in Literary Knowledge, which is the prerequisite for any Tier 2 course in Literary Knowledge.
