CCIV 202 SP
A lecture and discussion course on major works of 5th century BCE Greek tragedies and comedies. Major emphasis will be on reading the plays as performances rather than simply as texts. In order to do so, we will focus
on the literary aspects of the plays, on the historical and social context in which they are performed, and on the conventions of Greek theatrical production. In addition, some 20th century non-Greek plays may be
in order to illuminate certain tragic and comic motifs.
An extensive selection of plays by Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Aristophanes. Readings of background materials on the class website will also be required.
EXAMINATIONS AND ASSIGNMENTS
Students will be responsible for the readings mentioned above. There will be two or three in-class exams and a final exam or a short final paper, at the instructor's discretion.
ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS and/or COMMENTS
Students are urged to attend every class starting from the first.
