What Will I Read?

After engaging with works from the classical and medieval periods, HUM 3 brings in a variety of texts that reflect the birth of news ideas and perspectives during the Renaissance as well as the shock of encounters between Europe and the Americas. Some core texts that are often taught are:

  • Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca, Chronicle of the Narváez Expedition
  • Michel de Montaigne, The Essays
  • William Shakespeare, The Tempest
  • Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, Selected Writings 
  • John Milton, Paradise Lost
