Course Description: The British Isles have been a crossroads of gods, heroes, and kings, of both flesh and myth, for thousands of years. This course focuses on the depiction of English and Celtic medieval heroes in a variety of medieval and modern genres such as saints' lives, epic poetry, and romances. The texts are investigated in their social and cultural contexts. Special attention is given to Christian heroes like Cynewulf's Juliana, St. Bridget, and St. David as well as social outcasts like Robin Hood and Finn Mac Cumail and redeemer heroes like Owain Glyndwr and the romance heroes of Arthurian legend. Emphasis is on the literature and genres of the medieval period as well as their modern reception and (re-)interpretation in modern literature and film.
