This course will endeavor to show how authors who knew the Bible well used it to think through fundamental human problems. In this effort, they used the Bible sometimes as a help and sometimes as a sounding board. We will read selections from the Old and New Testaments in the King James Version and the works of three authors: Chaucer's mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"">Canterbury Tales (in the translation by Coghill , selected), Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream and King Lear, and Melville's Billy Budd. Midterm, final, two papers.
