Intro to World Literature Focus is on British Literature, but we will delve into other countries and cultures as wellCentral questions focus on story-telling and its purposes. As we read stories from 700AD to the 2000s, we aren’t going to focus quite as much on historical context as the author’s purpose. Why is (s)he telling this story? What methods does (s)he apply, and why? Can anything in a story written over a decade, a hundred, thousand years ago still be applied to our own lives?

Intro to World Literature First unit will be on epics – we’re going to read some of the first known stories humanity has documented. Our first longer piece will be Beowulf – one of the world’s first heroes.
