In this course we will read, in Greek, Euripides' ION (selections) and TROJAN WOMEN (entire). By close reading of the Greek text and by the study of selected works of criticism we will identify key questions posed by dramatic text, which will be the subject of in-class discussion and presentations. These might include, but will not be limited to: the staging, conventions, and conditions of performance of Greek tragedy; humans and gods; Euripides┐ female characters; the Euripidean hero; the historical context of the plays, both of which were produced about halfway through the Peloponnesian War.
