A275 Reading Classical Greek: Language and Literature

This module combines an introduction to classical Greek language with the study of classical Greek culture and literature in translation. It is intended for beginners in Greek and assumes no previous experience of language learning. Using the JACT Reading Greek books, this module teaches you basic vocabulary and grammar and sets you on the way to reading Greek texts in the original. Reading Classical Greek also develops your knowledge of the culture and literature of the classical era and includes the study, in translation, of three of the era’s most enduring texts: Euripides’ Medea, Aristophanes’ Clouds and Plato’s Defence of Socrates. This module is ideal both for students new to the discipline of classical studies and for anyone wising to expand their knowledge of the rich thought-world of classical Greece.
