This course will combine close reading of the Homeric Hymns (in particular, the major hymns to Aphrodite, Apollo, Demeter, Hermes, and Dionysos) with an exploration of the structure and function of hymns in Greek literature and society. We will ask what is Homeric about the Homeric Hymns, and discuss their relation to traditions of oral composition and performance in archaic Greece. To these ends, we will supplement our reading with selected passages from Homer, Hesiod, Sappho, and others. Required texts will include Foley, The Homeric Hymn to Demeter, and a packet of ancient texts and contemporary critical readings. Course requirements include two hour tests and a paper.
