  • Course Description:
    We will be translating and discussing Longus' Daphnis and Chloe in order to reinforce grammatical and syntactical concepts, improve reading skills and also the understanding of Greek literature of this period. Some secondary scholarship will be consulted to gain an overview of the 'renaissance' of Attic prose in the 2nd century A.D, the 'birth' of Greek novel, as well as of the relation between Greeks and Romans at the time and how that reflects on the contemporary literary creations. Once a week one of you will have to make a short (1 page) presentation in class on an aspect of the text we will be covering at the time.

    • Daily preparation of the assigned material is required and necessary. This will also help you succeed in your quizzes and exams.
