Week 01, Introduction to Comparative Literature 324

Welcome to CPLT 324, World Literature to 1650

Spring 2007 at California State University, Fullerton

This blog will offer posts on all of the authors on our syllabus. I will post two kinds of notes: general and page-by-page. Both kinds are optional reading, but I encourage you to read the entries as your time permits. While they are not exactly the same as what I may choose to say during class sessions (i.e. these are not usually exact copies of my lecture notes), they should prove helpful in your engagement with the authors and in arriving at paper topics and studying for the exam. Unless otherwise noted, the edition used for our selections is Lawall, Sarah, ed. The Norton Anthology of World Literature. 2nd. ed. Vols. ABC: Beginnings to 1650. New York: Norton, 2001. ISBN-10: 0393977641; # ISBN-13: 978-0393977646. A separate text is Shakespeare, William. As You Like It. Washington Square Press, 2004. ISBN-10: 074348486X. ISBN-13: 978-0743484862.

A dedicated menu at my wiki site 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.
