CLAS-G 306  Greek Oratory
Section 27488 / Christ

P: G250, G302, or G308. This course will focus on forensic oratory
("lawcourt speeches") in Classical Athens, particularly those
speeches written by Lysias and Demosthenes. We will study closely the
rhetoric and strategies of these speeches, and seek through our
readings to reconstruct the world of the Athenian lawcourts and
Athenian legal experience.  (A&H)
