CLASSICS 101G: Advanced Greek: Sophocles

Set at the end of the Trojan War, Sophocles' Ajax enacts the final hours of the second-greatest Greek hero. The play will act as a jumping-off point for discussions of the form and role of tragedy in 5th century BCE Athenian society, ancient depictions of mental illness, and the mirrored engagement of modern audiences with the Ajax and Sophocles' engagement with the Homeric tradition. We will read the play in its original Greek, with review of syntax, vocabulary, prosody, and historical context as needed. (Content note: this play depicts suicide.) Classics majors and minors may repeat for credit with advance approval from the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
