The course will be a comparative study of literary and historical presentations of persons and peoples such as Attila, Charlemagne, Arthur, Huns, and Burgundians. No knowledge of a foreign language is required, but students with such knowledge are encouraged to read some of the assigned works in the modern foreign tongue. The readings are chosen from English, Latin, German, French, and Scandinavian literature. Generally, the literary works will be analyzed as products of the socio-political scene, cultural tradition, and poetic invention. More specifically, attention is given to similarities and differences of parallels found in early historical accounts on the one hand and in works of belles-lettres on the other. Some of the historiographic writings considered are the histories of the Goths, Longobards, Franks, Angles, Britons, and Danes. Among the literary genres to be investigated are panegyric and heroic poem, Christian legend and drama, fabliau-type narrative, animal epic, and early forms of romance. As to the lyrical genre, selections will come from the large body of poems written in Latin and from the beginnings of poetry in the vernacular. The method of instruction will be a combination of lecture and class discussion. Students will give a brief oral presentation, write a paper, and take a final exam. (Scholler)
