In this advanced Greek course, we will read selections of Greek lyric poetry composed in the seventh, sixth, and fifth centuries BCE by authors such as Sappho, Alcman, Anacreon, Solon, and Simonides. These poems, many of which only survive on papyrus, represent the invention of Greek poetic subjectivity. They will afford students an opportunity to examine questions of genre, performance, and the relationship between poetry and society, while further developing their reading fluency in Greek. Emphasis will be placed on developing critical approaches to lyric poetry, and on introducing students to the techniques of editing texts on papyrus. Class size: 16
