We have been telling stories since we could speak. We invented writing so we could memorialize those stories for future generations to read. In this class, we will study literature from its foundations, focusing on why we tell stories, and how stories changed over the centuries. We will cover all types of writing, from poetry to plays to essays to short stories and books; both ancient and modern from around the world.
