This course provides an overview of one of the most unique genres of medieval literature: the romantic epic. From brave knights and marvelous wizards to cunning queens and hungry dragons, the literature of this class gives a fascinating introduction to the imaginative potential of the medieval world. This course also emphasizes how entertainment overlapped with ethical crisis, as romance reinforces social norms of gender and sex, race and religion. Prereq: ENGL 401.
