Title: Literature & Religion Part II
Course Section Number: ENG-196-02
Department: English
Description: This is a 2nd half semester course. Siblings and Parents: Brothers who murder or enslave each other, parents who sacrifice their children, children who abandon their parents. What do sacred stories tell us about how and when to honor family and when to abandon or disown them? This half-semester course examines family relationships across a variety of sacred texts and in the literature that those texts have inspired. Students will read and write about poems, stories, plays, and songs that respond to, and often challenge, sacred teachings about family relationships. Assigned texts will be drawn from a range of religious traditions, and students from all religious backgrounds, including no religious background, are welcome.
