CLASSICS 101G: Advanced Greek: Theocritus

Advanced Greek class on the poet Theocritus, the Hellenistic poet who invented the pastoral genre. Most of the class will be spent translating his poems. Discussion of the poems with readings of secondary scholarship will also be included. Virgil's Eclogues which were modeled on Theocritus' Idylls will be read in translation, but not in Latin. Other Greek pastoral poets like Bion and Moschus may be read if time permits. Readings of Theocritus out loud and in meter will be encouraged, but this will not be the main focus of the class. Grad students are welcome in the class and can write a paper for extra units. No paper required for undergrads. Classics majors and minors must take course for letter grade. Classics majors and minors may repeat for credit with advance approval from the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
