Prerequisite: GR 202 or permission of the instructor.Selected subject areas in Greek literature. The topic selected varies from year to year. May be repeated for degree credit with permission of instructor and if the topics are different.
Topic for Winter 2011:
GR 395: Advanced Study of Greek Lyric Poetry (3). We read selections of early Greek lyric, iambic, and elegiac poetry from David Campbell¹s classic commentary with a focus on the language and literary elements of early Greek poetry. We also review the various rules of grammar and syntax learned in previous Greek courses as they appear in the poems. In addition, we read a few works of secondary scholarship to aid our discussions of lyric. Primary texts may include Archilochus, Sappho, Alcaeus, Tyrtaeus, Simonides, Bacchylides, and Pindar.
