Literature: Uncovering the World of Myth

In this 10-week, online course learners will read, explore and enjoy stories from an array of the great texts that belong to the mythic traditions of the Classical world and wider antiquity; you will consider the hold that mythology continues to have over the modern mind, thinking about how and why these works and stories still resonate today and have persisted for so long, as well as setting them against their own time and seeking to understand their original intent. In doing so we will think about genre, style and form, as well as considering authorship and culture through appraising the backgrounds and context of each text, and particular writers, whilst also looking into more modern art and culture that has been influenced by and reworked these myths, this will add crucial context but also dive into the modern reading of the texts and myths. All texts will be read in English translation in a supportive atmosphere and with a knowledgeable tutor

Literature: ‘Fair and Forthright’

In this course we consider a range of texts across the ages, and a range of authors who may surprise us. We will be studying visionaries, radicals, the outspoken and the contemplative. There will be true encounters with wild beasts described, battles of will, acts of daring and downright mischief. Questions will be asked about the societies forming the backdrop to these texts, and how the call for justice was vital to giving half of each population a voice. How do these writers make a case for justice? How do they present to us the potential in their characters and their confidence in themselves? The link between all these texts? - they were all written by women.
