CLASSICS 13G: Intermediate Greek: Iliad

This course is intended to introduce students to the unique grammar, vocabulary, and narrative structure of Homeric poetry, with the Iliad as the primary point of focus. Members of the class will translate passages throughout the epic relating to diverse depictions of valor and heroism, with three types of heroic action being emphasized: contests of honor between warriors, discourse between soldiers and civilians, and acts of deception with questionable adherence to the 'heroic code.' Students will read in English all sections of the Iliad not covered in class, as well as selections of Classical-era tragedy and philosophy and modern popular culture which develop and/or interrogate the model of virtue established by Homeric poetry. Classics majors and minors may repeat for credit with advance approval from the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
