This course introduces students to Classical Mythology, with an
emphasis on Greek Mythology.  Through the semester students will
become familiar with the basic elements of Classical Mythology -
the major figures and the stories associated with them - and
learn how to assess the many layers of meaning of myths.  While
this course focuses on written versions of ancient myths, it will
also draw on visual evidence to explore the place of myth in the
ancient imagination.
