I'm teaching Introduction to Global Literature in the spring, and would like to move away from the anthology-based model. (I've used anthologies in the past, but I usually don't like the translations or the selection available.)
The way "global literature" is defined at my university is "any literature which is not American literature." This is because we also have a two-semester American Lit class, so students get that there.
Anyway, this is my tentative reading list at this point. I'm also going to add in some works that are available for free online -- Catullus, for example, and maybe Iphigenia at Aulis.
What I'm looking for is suggestions to add to the list, so if you see something I've missed, please comment!
