教育目標

This Elective is designed to give the student knowledge about major world mythologies. While reading the selected texts, we will explore developments of the stories and how they have been incorporated in literature as well as study the theories of interpretation.

課程概述

This course introduces both Greek and Roman mythology which form the basis of Western Literature and which continue to influence modern literature. Both myths and adaptations of myths in modern form will be read and studied. Various aspects of the myths will be discussed. Students will learn to approach myths critically and at the same time strengthen their skills in reading, analyzing and discussing narratives. This elective course (2 credits) provides a basis for literature classes taken in later years. General English skills should improve as well.
