Section 001, LEC
Antigone

Instructor: Porter,James I; homepage

WN 2007
Credits: 3

This class will be devoted to Sophocles' most controversial play, Antigone, which has puzzled readers both ancient and modern, and whose stature has only grown over the millennia, raising as it does timeless issues — questions about conflicting authorities and obligations, whether to family or the polis/state or to the gods. The class will consist in a close-reading of the play at a comfortable pace. One aim is to observe tragic language (vocabulary, syntax, particles). Another is to consider the play's meaning and structure. Secondary readings will be brought in part-way through the term. Short writing assignments in addition to weekly quizzes, a mid-term, and a final.

Books available at Shaman Drum. Further details at the CTools site once you enroll.
