G536: Survey of Greek Literature I 4cr. 1:00P-2:15P MW BH 241

This course surveys Greek poetry from Homer to the Imperial period.
(Greek prose will be covered in the second semester).  We will read
short Greek passages as examples of the individual authors, but
the bulk of the work in the course will be reading major
works in translations coordinated with the study of the
Cambridge History of Greek Literature.  The hope is that,
after taking this survey and its continuation in the second
semester, a student will be able to devote the following
summer to deepening his or her knowledge of the subject and
be prepared to pass the literature examination in the
following autumn.
