From Achilles to Zeus

For the past three weeks, I've been immersed in World Literature, and now the roses in my backyard are in full bloom. Roses are definitely symbolic in literature. Although it's been a year for me teaching classes, it's my first time around teaching this class. So far, it's been challenging. Here are some of the topics we've covered in class so far: 1.

Robert Frost There's only a week left and a lot of literature to cover!
