12:30 - 2:00 PM

This course is intended for students who have taken both Greek 100 and Greek 101. It provides an introduction to Greek drama through Euripidean tragedy. We will read Euripides’ Hippolytus, with close attention paid to translation of the Greek text and to the literary, religious, and historical issues raised by this play. We will in addition attempt to locate Euripides’ play within the broader cultural discourses on the problematic nature of women and gender norms and transgressions. Course requirements include regular translation in class, two midterms, a final exam, and a short (5-10 pp.) literary paper.
