C351 The Golden Age of Athens (3 CR)
This course examines the history and literature of Athens in the
fifth century B.C., particularly during the Peloponnesian War (431-
404 B.C.). Students will read extensively from the historian
Thucydides, the comic writer Aristophanes, and the tragedians
Sophocles and Euripides, as they seek to understand how
contemporaries viewed Athens' remarkable successes and failures in
its "Golden Age."
