Primary Instructor:

In this course, we begin with a review of major points of Classical Greek Syntax, to the end of gaining familiarity with a working knowledge of Greek grammar and prose vocabulary. Therefore we start with Eleanor Dickey's book, An Introduction to the Composition and Analysis of Greek Prose. The second half of the course is devoted to the art of Greek Prose composition. Here, we invest time in analyzing the stylistic features of Greek prose authors. Therefore, we both read several prose authors for features of style and attempt to create compositions in a 21st century version of “Good Attic Prose.”

Course Requirements:

Weekly compositions in the language of Attic Greek, sight reading of Ancient Greek Texts, vocabulary quizzes

Intended Audience:

Advanced undergraduates and early stage graduate students who wish to improve their knowledge of Greek prose styles

Class Format:

Reading, discussion
