Primary Instructor:

This course will examine all the genres of Greek drama (tragedy, Old Comedy, New Comedy, and satyr-play), including both the most famous works (Agamemnon, Oedipus the King) and some less familiar ones (Euripides' Cyclops, pseudo-Euripides' Rhesus.) We will mainly consider the original social and intellectual context of the dramas, but will not ignore their later history in reception and how they have been read, adapted, and produced up to the present. We will watch and discuss some videos of productions. Each student will write one short (6pp.) paper on a single play and do a presentation individually or in a group, on a later translation, adaptation, imitation, or production. There will also be a final exam.
