ENGL 010. Monsters, Marvels, and Mysteries: Beowulf to Paradise Lost
The first thousand years of English Literature with an emphasis on monsters like Grendel and Satan, marvels like a talking tree and a boy actor playing a woman pretending to be a man, and mysteries like the moth that devours words and a green knight who offers a hero the chance to chop off his head. Some modern retellings such as Gardner's Grendel and Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead will be included. Major authors include Chaucer, Shakespeare, and Milton.
