Section 26698 / Porter

P: G250, G302, or G308. Our central focus will be on the close
reading in Greek of what many consider the greatest Greek tragedy,
Aeschylusí Agamemnon. We will also read Aeschylusí other six plays
in translation, with special attention to the Choephori and
Eumenides, the second and third plays of the Oresteia, and will
become acquainted with some of the rich trove of Aeschylean
scholarship and criticism.  Final and midterm examinations on
translation; occasional short reports; final 12-15 page research
paper.  (A&H)
