ANHS5901 - Classical Texts in Translation

Semester 2, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Frances Muecke


This unit of study explores key works of Classical literature in translation, with a focus on the messages they bore in their original contexts. The textual production of the ancient world provides a pathway into a broader understanding of Greek and Roman thought and culture: Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, for example, introduces the reader to the worldview and outlook of archaic Greece; Seneca's bloody and violent tragedies give stark insight into the uncertainties of life under Nero.
