This module, designed to follow on from GK1005, will introduce students to two new areas of Greek literature, between which there are interesting and important thematic connections: bucolic or pastoral poetry (the Idylls of Theocritus) and the romantic novel (Longus). Both these set texts will be studied in the original Greek. Classes will cover both detailed study of the set texts and linguistic/translation exercises designed to enhance students' knowledge of Greek.
