CLGR 201
Intermediate Greek Fall 2023
Division I

Class Details

This course will be based on readings from Plato’s Ion and Hesiod’s Theogony in their original Greek. These texts will give you a taste of both Classical prose and Archaic poetry and enable you to improve your ability to read, comprehend, and translate ancient Greek literature. Plato and Hesiod also offer important and influential perspectives on the origins, effects, and value of poetry, and we will use their work as a starting point for asking ourselves questions like: what is poetry? Where does it come from? What is it good for? Students who successfully complete this course will be well-prepared for advanced study of Greek language and literature.
