Later Greek Poetry - GRKA3007

Year - 2020

The Hellenistic period was a time of great literary innovation and refinement coupled with intense experimentation and intertextual dialogue with the authors and masterworks of the Classical past. In this unit we will advance the study of Greek literary language and form through the close study of selections from the epic, elegiac, and melic poetry of the post-Classical period.
