The Greek Novel
GRK 258
Spring 2020 not offered

In the course we will read selections from Longus' DAPHNIS AND CHLOE and Chariton's CHAEREAS AND CALLIRHOE. The former is a story of young love in a pastoral setting on the island of Lesbos; the latter, an incident-packed narrative in which a young husband and wife are separated, but after many vicissitudes, reunited. Subjects covered will include genre and setting, narrative and descriptive techniques, cultural context, and likely readership.
