Welcome to the support site for Literature of the Non-Western World.  This page offers you fairly easy access to the 13 lessons that constituted the online version of this course.  You may wish to use these pages, especially the "explication" pages, as study aids for the Norton Anthology of World Masterpieces.  Click the button to see the syllabus:

Use the maroon navigation bar at the top of each page to access the four pages that constitute each lesson.  The bar looks like this:
Introduction Explication Questions Review

The navigation bar will only work for each unit or lesson.  For example, if you access lesson 03 below, the navigation bar will only work "inside" unit 03.  To access other units, return to this page to click on the unit number you want to see.
