ENGL 382: The Bible as Literature
This course evaluates the English Bible as a literary text, with readings from the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures (including the Apocrypha). Along with historical and cultural backgrounds, emphasis will be placed on literary genres present in (and sometimes unique to) the Bible, aspects of biblical language and poetics, and the intratextuality of biblical texts. The course will also compare the Bible's relationship with the text of the Qur'an and with readings and research in biblical influences on Western and world literature.
