HUM Summer Reading [Aug. 29th, 2005|12:13 am]
Princeton University Class of 2009


Okay, let's be honest: how far have people who've applied for the HUM sequence gotten in the summer reading assignment? With less than a week to go (for anyone going on OA/CA), we're getting down to the wire...

I've finished The Iliad and am about halfway through The Odyssey. I haven't really started the Bible yet.

Forgive me father...I've finished the Iliad, but I still have A LOT of the Bible, including all of reading we have to do in the New Testament, as well as the Odyssey, which I've already read but that was four years ago.

Agreed. I would say that a knowledge of Homer is a little more valuable than a knowledge of the OT, at least in HUM, but die_auslanderin is dead on. Unless you enjoy (*shudder*) reading Kings, stick with Genesis, Exodus, Daniel, and Job -- a knowledge of Job (at least the end of it) is super-important.
