CLSS, ENGL 056-10 Myth and the Hero: Homer’s Odyssey and Dante’s Inferno (HU) CRN 44031 / 4 credits
Professor Pavlock, M, W; 12:45 - 2:00 p.m.
This course will examine how myth is used to portray Odysseus (later known as Ulysses) as the greatest hero of intelligence and cunning.  We will begin by analyzing seminal myths of Homer’s Odyssey, such as the entrapment of Ares and Aphrodite, the song of the Sirens, and the ruse of the Trojan horse, and by considering the responses to these stories by characters within the narrative, including the hero himself.  We will then turn to the negative view of Odysseus in Sophocles’ tragedy Philoctetes, which questions the ethics of Odysseus as it takes up a myth mentioned in Homer’s Iliad about the absence of the wounded warrior Philoctetes.  Finally, we will explore how the late medieval poet Dante powerfully re-imagines this hero in the Inferno, where Ulysses, condemned to eternal punishment, tells the story of his final journey after he returned home from his wanderings following the Trojan War.
