CLAS235-18S2 (C) Semester Two 2018

Intermediate Greek Authors 2

15 points
16 Jul 2018 - 18 Nov 2018


Continued study of Greek literature and unseen passages, with emphasis on the development of knowledge of the language. This involves reading important texts by authors such as Sophocles, Euripides, Thucydides, Homer and others, as well as analysing these more fully in their cultural and literary context.

In building on what students have achieved in Greek 234, Greek 235 aims to deepen their
understanding of the Classical Greek language and culture as well as to broaden their knowledge of Greek literature. We shall aim to read about 600-700 of authors such as Plato, Thucydides, et al. Each reading session aims not only to clarify the text in terms of its linguistic components, but also to encourage appreciation and discussion of its literary, intellectual and dramatic qualities, and its appeal to ancient (as well as modern) sensibilities. Classes on unseens and grammar will usually be held on a weekly basis.
