Students electing this course should have completed at least one year of Attic Greek. To the degree that there is mastery of the paradigm forms and the principal parts of the most common irregular verbs the reading assignments will be made easier and more enjoyable. Careful attention will be paid to the key features of koine Greek, especially as those features part company from Attic Greek morphology and syntax. One midterm exam, a two-hour final, and regular participation in class will determine the course grade; there are no papers. In-class translation is followed by a discussion of the text.

In this course I intend to focus on the performance, reception and imitation of Archaic lyric poetry. We will work primarily with five poets: Alcaeus, Sappho, Ibycus, Anacreon and Simonides. We will be reading each of these poets from these three perspectives:

  1. the poetry's original performance(s), its socio-cultural context(s) and significance for the Archaic period;
  2. the ancient edition and scholarship of each poet;
  3. imitations of each poet in later authors, and even other art forms.

Our study will encompass questions of genre definition, canonization of authors and texts, literary biography, and the role of social groups in instantiating art forms, poetic persona, and the varied aesthetics of aural vs. reader reception.

Participants in the course are expected to have some general background in Greek poetry, and it is hoped that all read Latin easily. Course requirements include two oral reports, two stylistic analyses, and 1 final paper (ca. 15-20 pages). The texts will include one OCT and a reader.

Parmenides, Plato's Parmenides, and the reception of Plato's Parmenides: a brief history of Greek metaphysics. In this course we will focus on Plato's dialogue, Parmenides, paying careful attention to translation and structure. We will also read the fragments of Parmenides' lost poem, The Way of Truth. Moreover we will consider responses to Plato's Parmenides, as for example Aristotle's Peri Ideon (On Ideas) and the Neoplatonic tradition that interpreted Parmenides in terms of a systematic philosophy. Students will be responsible for translation as well as for two presentations and a final paper.
