In the two weeks of the course students will read through the ninth book of Homer’s Odyssey, as well as texts in classical and classicising Greek so as two experience several forms of expression of the ancient Greek language. The course will focus on the lexical (etymologies, lexical families etc) and syntactical complexities of the texts, as well as on poetic syntax, style, and rhetoric. Participants are expected to dedicate 2 hours of daily individual work in preparing the fragments that would be discussed the following course day.

Course leader

Stefan Colceriu and Cristian Nicolae Gaspar.

Target group

The course is designed for those who have functionally assimilated Greek morphology and syntax and have a rich, consolidated Greek vocabulary (i.e., to the level of what methods like Reading Greek or Hermaion-Discovering Greek Step by Step cover in terms of morphology, syntax, and vocabulary).

Course aim

By the end of the course, participants will have improved their ability to read difficult Greek texts, from a variety of genres.
