Ancient Narrative Literature

Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University - winner of the 'Postgraduate' category at the WhatUni? Student Choice Awards 2017. The course focuses on the narratives of the ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians, both fictional and factual, in a variety of literary forms, including the novel, epic poetry, mythology, historiography, and biography. The programme introduces students to the key concepts of literary and cultural theory connected with narrative and encourages them to explore new ways of reading ancient texts. As well as some of the classics of ancient literature, it also examines some less familiar texts that articulate the stories of sections of the ancient population marginalised by gender and social status.
