The Ideal Greek Novel: A Synthesis of Myth and Fiction
GRK 258
Fall 2007 not offered

This course examines the nature of fiction in the so-called ideal Greek novel. The emphasis of the course will be on Longus, but Achilles Tatius, Chariton, Xenophon of Ephesus, and Heliodorus will also be considered. The rising sophistication in literary allusion, readership issues, and the internal structure of the novel will be examined. Students will gain familiarity with the language of the novel (vocabulary and syntax) in addition to an understanding of the larger literary aspects of the genre.
