Aims

This module aims:

1. To further develop students' skills in reading, interpreting and analysing original literary texts in classical Greek;
2. To develop students' knowledge and understanding of the nature of specific Greek literary texts, and of problems and issues involved in the study of those texts.

Outline Of Syllabus

Students taking this module will undertake work on two literary texts in the original Greek. The particular texts will be determined on a yearly basis, taking into account the need to avoid overlap between a student's Stages 2 and 3 (and, where relevant, their Master's stage).

and ( c ) the relationship between (a) and (b);
3. skills in evaluating modern scholarship and in testing its view against the ancient evidence;
4. skills in presenting their views and analyses in written and oral form
They will have further developed:
