CLGR 404
Tragedy Spring 2023
Division I

Class Details

This course will focus on reading, in Greek, a complete tragedy by Sophocles or Euripides. It will thus improve your ability to read and analyze Greek poetry in a variety of styles and meters. While focusing on questions of particular importance for the play we are reading in Greek, we will also situate that play in a larger context by exploring, for instance: aspects of the social and political situations in and for which fifth-century tragedies were first produced; the several performance genres out of which tragedy was created; developments in the physical characteristics of the theater and in elements of staging and performance; problems of representation particularly relevant to theatrical production and performance.
