Home Page for English 242

Welcome to E242, World Literature 400-1600 CE
Spring 2009 at Chapman University in Orange, California

This blog will offer optional-reading posts on all or most of the texts on our syllabus. I encourage you to examine the entries as your time permits. While not exact copies of my lecture notes, they should prove helpful in your engagement with the texts and in arriving at paper topics. The editions used are as follows:

Glidden, Hope, ed. Lyrics of the French Renaissance: Marot, Du Bellay, Ronsard. Trans. Norman Shapiro. Chicago: University Of Chicago Press, 2006. ISBN-13: 978-0226750521.

Lawall, Sarah, ed. The Norton Anthology of World Literature. 2nd. ed. New York: Norton, 2003. Package 1: Volumes A, B, C: Beginnings to 1650. ISBN-13: 978-0393924534.

Zenkovsky, Serge A. Medieval Russia's Epics, Chronicles, and Tales. New York: Penguin, 1974. ISBN-13: 978-0452010864.

A dedicated menu called E242 Spring at WWW.AJDRAKE.COM/WIKI contains the necessary information for students enrolled in this course. When the semester has ended, this blog will remain online, and a copy of the syllabus will remain in the Archive menu.
