Greek (Ancient) 101. Elementary Greek.

Elementary Courses

Section 001 Meets with Ancient Greek 502.001.

Instructor(s): Benjamin Acosta-Hughes (bacosta@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: Graduate students should elect the course as Greek 502. (4). (LR).

Credits: (4).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

In combination with Greek 102, this is the first half of a year-long introduction to ancient Greek and is designed to prepare students for the reading of Greek texts. Greek 101 concentrates on fifth-century B.C. Attic Greek which was the language of the "golden age" of Athens. The Greek language of that time and place represents a cultural and linguistic central point from which students can pursue their own interests within a wide range of Greek literature which extends from the Homeric epics to the Byzantine era and which includes the archaic, classical, and Hellenistic periods as well as the koine Greek of the New Testament. The purpose of the course is to develop the fundamentals of the language so that these fundamentals can then be applied to whatever area of ancient Greek students wish to pursue.

This course is part of the second year of the ancient Greek language sequence. Students can elect it as an alternative or in addition to Greek 301 or in addition to Greek 302. Rather than focusing on the gospels of Mark and Matthew, this course is designed to introduce students to Koine Greek texts such as the Septuagint (the Greek translation of the Old Testament), the New Testament (the Synoptic Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles and the Letters of St. Paul), hagiographical biographies, martyrologies, etc. The choice of text(s) is at the discretion of the instructor. The purpose of this course is to read accurately koine texts. Emphasis will be placed upon the key-features of koine Greek, especially as those differ from Attic Greek morphology and syntax; upon linguistic and grammatical skills; and upon translation and comprehension. One midterm and one final exam as well as regular participation in class will determine the course grade.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

This course will provide students an opportunity to work closely with the three "romance' tragedies of Euripides, the IT, the Helen, and the Ion. We will begin our discussion of the three plays with some theoretical framework (particularly Northrop Frye's Secular Scripture), and will then turn to three Euripidean dramas which both challenge and help to define many of our assumptions of "tragic" and "tragedy". The course will combine close reading with thematic discussion of, i.a., the heritage of Homer's Odyssey, scope and function of recognition scenes, the place of humor in tragedy, Euripidean monody, and paratragedy in Aristophanes. Course requirements, besides regular attendance and participation, include three short translation exams and a final paper (15-20 pages).

Long, D.N. Sedley. Cambridge University Press, 1987. Ethics and Action in Early Stoicism. Brad Inwood; Other texts are: Cicero's Academica, Philodemus' De pietate, and parts of Plutarch's Contradictions of the Stoics.
