Welcome to the wiki page for ENGL 2111: World Literature I.
These fall 2020 sections of ENGL 2111 (CRNs 83647 and 83648) will consider the earliest expressions of western literature. We will closely read a small sampling of foundational texts from the two major genres of the time, epic and tragedy, and examine their continued relevance to our contemporary world.
