Literature Humanities Redesigned As Frat Parties

Bwog staffer Will Lyman, inspired by Beta Theta Pi’s recent “Dante’s Inferno” event, reimagines the Literature Humanities curriculum as party themes.

The Iliad // Homer: Dress code is armor and sword. Everyone fights to the death. Last person standing gets to post it on their snap story.

The Odyssey // Homer: Each section of the house represents a different danger faced by Odysseus on his journey back to Ithaca. For example, scylla would be represented by the boys at the door who never get to actually attend the party.

Genesis: Completely evacuate the building. Plant a large apple tree in the center. Remove all food. First one to bite the apple has to buy booze and is also responsible for the entirety of human sin. Also, everyone is naked to stay true to the theme.

Job: Your children, crops, and livestock are all confiscated at the door. In this party scenario, everyone sits around in a large circle and confesses their sins, wondering what brought suffering upon them. Satan laughs.

The Histories // Herodotus: Nobody read this book. SKIP

Symposium // Plato: A dinner party with only jungle juice. Everyone must eat with a knife and fork.

Song of Solomon // Toni Morrison: Set in the Solomon Islands (2-way metro cards included with RSVP), partygoers will listen to a looped audiobook of the Song of Solomon from the Hebrew Bible. 

To the Lighthouse // Virginia Woolf: Scavenger hunt party where everyone searches Manhattan for an actual lighthouse. Directions not included.
