The Intellectual Revolution
GRK 202
Spring 2007
Section: 01  

In this course we read selections from Euripides' MEDEA and from Thucydides' HISTORY OF THE PELOPONNESIAN WAR in the original Greek, at the rate of 40-60 lines per class. Running vocabularies in the text provide assistance in translation, and links to on-line resources help with morphological (form) analysis. Daily assignments of vocabulary memorization and of grammar and syntax review of verbs and verbal constructions are designed to help students consolidate and expand their knowledge of ancient Greek. Daily discussions of language, themes, and (for Thucydides) historical events introduce students to the analysis and understanding of ancient Greek texts. The aims of the course are threefold: (1) mastery of ancient Greek; (2) development of skills in literary and historical analysis; (3) introduction to major aspects of ancient Greek history and culture.
