GREK 402B/502B: Greek Tragedy

Depending on the interests of the class, we will choose either a complete play to read, or a selection of scenes containing a common theme or element. Possibilities include “comic” scenes in tragedy, a figure such as Apollo or Heracles, or endings (e.g. questions of resolution, expectations, and interpolation). Students enrolled will be consulted by email in November so that class materials will be organized for January.

Note: Students may take Greek 402 more than once, since the content varies each year.
