Training Citizens? Aesthetics and Ideology in Greek Drama
CCIV 277
Fall 2012 not offered

This course will explore how the first plays in the history of theater connect with the development of the first democracy. The Athenian dramatists confront social and political issues such as warfare, gender relations, assessment of guilt, and justice. How do the plays engage their audiences intellectually and emotionally, aesthetically and ideologically? How do ancient poets and philosophers assess these responses, and what is the role they reserve for drama in their (ideal) states?
