Courses: Approaches to Homeric Epic (GREKB602001)

Spring 2008

Class Number: 2078
A close study of the Homeric Iliad, and a survey of some major
scholarly "camps" surrounding its interpretation. In addition to
reading much of the epic in Greek, students should also expect to
engage the methodologies that have been used to approach this
peculiar, monumental poem. Oralist, narratological, neo-analytic,
linguistic, historical and Marxist readings will be applied and
dissected. Two oral reports and a research paper will be expected.
