CLASSICS 12G: Intermediate Greek: Euripides' Medea

(Formerly CLASSGRK 102.) The Medea of Euripides was first performed in 431 BCE at the Great Dionysia of Athens, where it won last place. Euripides¿ vision of the Colchian princess as a spurned spouse and a murderous mother, however, would triumph in the imaginations of Western readers for millennia. In this class, we will study the script and stagecraft of the Medea in the original Greek in order to better appreciate how the artistry of the tragic poet made Medea a source of both admiration and terror. We will read selections from Medea and relevant secondary readings on Greek tragedy and the reception of Euripides after the fifth century. Our primary objective in this class is to achieve fluid reading ability with Euripides¿ vocabulary, syntax, and meter. Secondary goals include revisiting grammar concepts and learning about the historical contexts surrounding Medea¿s production. Classics majors and minors may repeat for credit with advance approval from the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
