An introduction to Greek grammar and reading Greek. Students learn the language and literature of primarily Athens of the fifth and fourth centuries BC, and focus on texts closely modelled on authors such as Plato, Aristophanes and more. The course involves some study of the cultural background of these texts, including the philosophy of Socrates, life during wartime and the role of women in ancient Greece.
