Classical Studies | Greek Historians
G407 | 1040 | Christ


G407: Greek Historians meets Tuesday and Thursday from 2:30-3:45P in
SW 103.  This section also meets with G510, Readings in Greek
Historians.

This class will focus on Herodotus' *Histories*.  Herodotus is one of
the most fascinating and enjoyable Greek writers:  his *Histories* are
intriguing not only as the first extant historical work in the Greek
tradition, but also as an ambitious and remarkable example of
narrative art and storytelling.  Students will read selections in
ancient Greek from Books 1 and 3, and the remainder of the work in
English.
