200A: Tps:Classica Africana

This course explores the ways in which modern literature of peoples of African descent engages with ancient Greek and Roman literature. It focuses upon how the oppositional art of Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man, Toni Morrison's Beloved, and Rita Doves' Mother Love riffs on such works of classical literature as Homer's Odyssey, Euripides' Medea and The Homeric Hymn to Demeter.
