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 502 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.

Prerequisites: GREEK 302. (3).

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).
