Intermediate-Advanced Greek Reading: Plato's Phaedrus
Mon. 9pm Eastern (note time change)
Course Description: This class is an exercise in "slow reading" the aim is not to go as far as possible but to get as much as possible out of every line as regards the nuances of both grammar/syntax and the author’s message. NB: It is a continuation of the previous reading class on the same text. We'll announce the starting point at least a week before class begins. New students are expected to have read thus far at least in a translation. Sight reading is not required, home preparation is essential.
Level: This course is intended for students with intermediate to advanced knowledge of Ancient Greek.
Textbook: Plato, Phaedrus edited [with commentary] by Harvey Yunis (Cambridge: UP, 2011)
Sections capped at: 5 students. If the course is sold-out, please fill out this waiting-list form.
