HUM 389 Topics in Humanities: Writing the Epic Character

What do Odysseus, Don Quixote, Luke Skywalker, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer have in common?  How do we define the epic figure in classic literature and popular culture?  In this thematic course on serial narrative, students will read, watch, listen to and creatively examine what motivates us to following a character, episode by episode, story by story.  Drawing from Campbell's Hero With a Thousand Faces and elements of Dungeons and Dragons' character design, we will write character-driven epics, experimenting with prose, poetry, script, and visual media to create several arcs for an original epic figure.  Prerequisite: ENG 101. 3cr.
