Epic, history, philosophy, tragedy, comedy, lyric: invented or reinvented by the Greeks and Romans, transmitted from the ancient Mediterranean to modern world literature.

Homer and Virgil; Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides; Herodotus and Tacitus; Catullus and Ovid; Sappho, Plato and more: great authors who have been shaping great conversations for over 2000 years.  Three lectures each week, team-taught by the entire faculty of the Department of Classics; twice-weekly discussion sections in which you will find out how these texts talk to each other and how they can talk to you.
