Course Description

The literature and art of Greece from the Bronze Age to the Roman period offers a window on the formation of human societies generally, and on the emergence of concepts considered specific to the Western tradition. Students will have the opportunity to become acquainted with such classics as Homer, Herodotos, Euripides, Plato and Aristotle in their cultural and historical contexts, and with Greek achievements in art and architecture. From democracy to slavery, we will explore the glorious, and not- so-glorious, aspects of ancient Greece and its enduring influence.
