Course Content (Syllabus)
This course is designed exclusively for classics majors. Its object is the linguistic and interpretive analysis of ancient Greek works written in prose. It normally focuses on prose-writers and their works that have not normally been studied in depth during other courses on prose-literature (Xenophon, Lucian, Plutarch). One or more writers are selected, representing various literary genres in prose, particularly from the post-classical period, and emphasis is given to the close study of relevant texts from the original, the familiarization of students with the era in which these works were written, and to issues pertaining to practical criticism and interpretation of the works. The course makes ample use of all technological facilities, such as power point, specialized sites available on internet (e.g. TLG, The Gate to the Greek Language, the program about the Erasmic pronunciation). All necessary external links are made available directly on the webpage of the course (blackboard).
