CLL 151 - (LT) Studies in Literature: Greek Literature in a Comparative Context

Semester Hours: 3
A three-week course held in the ultra-modern Goethe Institute in Athens, Greece (minutes from our hotel), which interacts with the city of Athens, the Greek islands, shrines and archaeological sites in Delphi, Epidaurus, and Mycenae which we visit, as well as the places you explore on your own. Our readings include ancient and modern Greek works of literature, as well as literature about Greece by travelers from Europe and America. Students compare their reactions to some of the greatest writers in the world. Readings include: plays by Aristophanes’ Lysistrata, The Clouds; assorted poems (Sappho, Pindar, Byron, Solomos, Palamas, H.D., Spender, Seferis, Elytis, etc.); and travel writing (Miller, Colossus of Marousisi, as well as excerpts from Twain, Melville, Freud, etc.).
