Course Description

From TS Eliot’s grand reworking of grail mythology, through Yeats’s esoteric Celticism, Ezra Pound’s eclectic borrowings from Confucianism, Greek and Roman mythology, to James Joyce’s modern Homeric Ulysses, modernist writers have been fascinated by mythological sources, and interweaved and critiqued the originals in dazzling displays of verbal energy and inventiveness. We will look at some of the major works of modernism as well as lesser-known figures on the fringes, alongside myths and legends from which these literary works draw their inspiration and being, examining how profoundly literature invests in these ancient archetypal narratives.
