Advanced Greek - GRKA3600

Year - 2019

This unit offers advanced study in the literature and language of ancient Greek. Reading and translation skills will be honed by classes in which a wide selection of prose and poetic authors will be studied, and through regular translation of unseen passages. Short exercises in translation into Greek will further develop knowledge and appreciation of literary Greek. The unit will involve close reading and analysis of classic works of Greek prose and/or poetry, paying close attention to style and diction, to literary and narrative technique and to aspects of versification.
