Classical Literature

In this course students learn to recognize the central characters, metaphors, and ideas that comprise the classical consciousness of Greece and Rome. Works by Homer, Sophocles, Aeschylus, Virgil, Sappho, and others are studied both through traditional methods of close reading and the questions raised by structuralism and deconstruction. Students also acquire an understanding of classical literature as oral and theatrical genres.
