Spend a weekend with the creators of the western literary tradition

We’ll look at a variety of genres, including Epic poetry and tragic and comic drama. The prose of Thucydides’ history and Plato’s philosophical dialogue Symposium will also be sampled.  

No previous knowledge will be required, and all the texts will be translated into English.
