This course features various professors lecturing on their specialties relating to the Near Eastern and Mediterranean foundations of the Western literary tradition, up to the modern literature of Faulkner and Kafka. A weighty subject is made accessible through the upbeat and enthusiastic lectures. Pacing is well done, and each lecture is about 30 minutes. Course guidebooks, which include outlines and transcripts of the lectures, along with questions to consider and additional resources, allow listeners to revisit parts of the lecture or move to their areas of interest. With 42 hours of lectures, this information is equal to a three-credit undergraduate course, but one pleasantly carried out at your own pace.
