In this course we'll read a selection of works from the European Middle Ages, concentrating especially on those in which the themes of love and death intersect. Works will include Chrétien de Troyes's Yvain and The Saga of Kormak the Skald as well as selections from such longer works and collections as the Mabinogion, Boccaccio's Decameron, Malory's Morte Arthur, and The Nibelungenlied.  Satisfies the literature before 1700 requirement for the English major.
