Bruce A. McMenomy, Ph.D. for Scholars Online
2018-19: Tuesdays, 11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Eastern Time
September 4, 2018 to May 28, 2019
This course is principally taught from a single textbook:
- World Literature, Revised Edition,
by Albert, Cohen, Kam, Leeming, Monsell, Moulton, Nied, and Oshinsky;
Austin, TX: Holt, Rinehart, and Winston, 1998.
You should also have:
- A good (reasonably modern) dictionary. I personally recommend the Fourth Edition of the American Heritage Dictionary, because it has clear definitions and very good usage notes; it also has a number of useful appendices and charts that will help you understand the way at least the Indo-European languages work (that group including almost all modern European languages, as well as a number of ancient languages -- including Greek and Latin, Sanskrit and Hittite).
- A good modern translation of the Bible. This is of course important as a document of faith for Christians, but it is also helpful in understanding the literature of the last two thousand years.
