CLGR 403
Poetry and Revolution in Archaic Greece Fall 2024
Division I

Class Details

Taken together, the historian Herodotus and the Greek lyric poets (Alcaeus, Solon, Pindar, and others) offer a fascinating window into the tumultuous world of archaic Greece: a period of colonial expansion, political experimentation, and artistic innovation. In this course, we will read selections from both Herodotus’ Histories and archaic Greek lyric, in order to understand how these two genres can work together to illuminate Greek cultural discourse during this pivotal era. Students will improve their ability to read Greek poetry and prose in multiple dialects, and deepen their understanding of Greek history and literary style.
