CLSG 205 - Greek Lyric
This course is designed for students who can already read ancient Greek at an advanced level. Students will read extensively from Greek lyric poetry, with special attention paid to the choral lyric of Pindar and Bacchylides. Among the other works to be studied are poems that have been discovered and published only in the last few years, including works by Archilochus, Simonides, and Sappho. Although the focus will be on the archaic period, students will also consider the afterlife of archaic lyric in the poetry of the Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods. Special attention will be paid to issues of genre, meter, and performance context.
