Students will study a diverse range of ancient poetry in the original Greek, starting with Homer's Iliad. It then introduces students to key genres of the Greek poetic tradition, including lyric, elegy and drama. Classes will cover both detailed study of the set texts in their cultural context and linguistic/translation exercises designed to enhance students' knowledge of Greek.
