immortality

Midterm Study Guide for Humanities 101
I You should study the themes that we have discussed in relation to each of the texts. These
themes are best studied in relation to the passages that we have discussed in lecture or other
significant passages in yo
ur texts. However, I list these themes below:
quest for immortality; the heroic code of Homer; humans in relation to the divine; the role of art
and epic poetry in relation to immortality; male friendship; grief and mourning; human reason
and intelligenc
e as both gift and liability; savagery vs. civilization; the individual self in relation
to both family and city; the heroic individual and his/her isolation (commitment to values that
transcend those of the community).
II
Terms, Concepts, etc. you should
be familiar with for the Midterm

exhaustive list; that is, there could be material on the midterm that is not on this list). Be sure to
