Summary of Classical Literature with Dr. Sexson
It has been an enlightening semester. Not at all unlike the other two classes that I had the pleasure of taking with Dr. Sexson, Oral Tradition and American Lit. We explored the everything from American Gothic to sparagmos and back to Hades and Heaven. My favorite part of the class would be a mixture of the transformations in Ovid's Metamorphosis and the Golden Ass. I know that the past possesses the present and that there is a one in three chance of everything. Thanks to this class even reading the newspaper has become a small adventure, looking for all of the connections and references to mythology and the past.
