Classical Mythology (Course in Translation)
Tues., 8:00pm Eastern
Level: This course is open to students at all levels. No prior knowledge of mythology nor any knowledge of Latin or Greek is required.
Textbook: The Bibliotheke (“Library”) of Apollodorus (or Pseudo-Apollodorus, as some prefer to call the author), preferably in the translation by Robin Hard (Apollodorus: The Library of Greek Mythology, Oxford University Press, 1997), although there are a number of translations out there, including online versions of Sir James George Frazer’s translation, which is a good alternative. Also Ovid’s Metamorphoses is recommended (but not required) — A.D. Melville’s translation published by Oxford University Press is recommended, but there are numerous options, including some online (such as that of Brookes More, at the Perseus Digital Library and Theoi). Additional materials provided by instructor.
Sections capped at: 5 students. If the course is sold-out, please fill out this waiting-list form.
