dsc_6976-opt

Hello Everyone,

Today I thought I would do something a little different. I want to share with you most of the things that I am reading this semester for Uni. I say most of them because for my Classics course we have to read a lot of sections from numerous authors, but not whole books. Therefore I will only tell you which physical books I have to read this semester. I am taking a total of five classes, four English classes and the Classics one.

English 395: Contemporary African American Literature – Slavery and Postmemory.

  • The Narrative Life of Frederick Douglass, by Frederick Douglass
  • My Bondage and My Freedom, by Frederick Douglass
  • The Known World, by E. P. Jones
  • Dessa Rose, by Shirley Anne Williams
  • The Good Lord Bird, by James McBride
  • The Underground Railroad, by Colson Whitehead

English 290: Human Values in Literature – Non-Western Voices

  • Things Fall Apart, by Chinua Achebe
  • Wide Sargasso Sea, by Jean Rhys
  • The Woman Warrior, by Maxine Hong Kingston
  • No Telephone to Heaven, by Michelle Cliff
  • July’s People, by Nadine Gordimer
  • Cracking India, by Bapsi Sidhawa

Classical Studies 384: Humanist of Antiquity II – Rome

  • Ancient Rome: From Romulus to Justinian, by Thomas R. Martin
  • Miles Gloriosus, by Plautus
  • Adelphi, by Terentius
  • Thyestes, by Seneca

Until next time,
